Located in the heart of Karlin, it’s hard to believe Kasárna Karlín hasn’t been around forever. This multi-purpose cultural center opened in June 2017 in the courtyard of an abandoned army barracks. It boasts an outdoor cinema, bar, cafe, gallery, sculpture garden, and most recently, the 4+4 festival’s artistic squatting art exhibit.
Kasárna Karlín is now preparing a new season of events for the warm-weather months of 2018 and will kick things off this week with its first open-air cinema screening.
On Saturday, it will screen the seminal San Francisco cop classic Dirty Harry starring Clint Eastwood. The movie will be shown in English with Czech subtitles. The screening will commence at 22:00 and the entrance is 80 CZK.
Further screenings and events have yet to be announced but you can keep yourself updated following the Kasárna Karlín Facebook page
Trying to create a new public space, Kasárna Karlín is operated by a group of artists. The barracks are still owned by the Ministry of Defense of the Czech Republic. The artists have signed a three-year lease to use the area.
