Top Pick: Múzeum film club a respite on hot days

As the summer progresses and the mercury rises, one of the better ways to cool off is to take in a movie at one of Bratislava's numerous theatres or film clubs. And on the hottest days, the cool viewing rooms of the Múzeum film club is always a sure bet. While theatres offer the often dull-witted, mainly Hollywood-made movies sweeping western box-offices, film clubs instead show selections which have been out a bit longer and have proven to be intelligent crowd-pleasers. Listed below are future dates for Filmclub Múzeum, located right behind the historical walls of the Town Museum and accessible from Hlavné námestie (Main Square) in the Old Town.
All movies are in English with Slovak subtitles and start at 19:00 in the muzeum projection hall. Tel: 5443 1473.
