Mobile movie projector tours the country

THE MOBILE movie-projector Bažant kinematograf 2003, which started its tour around Slovakia on June 22 at the Art Film Festival in Trenčianske Teplice, has recently left Zemplínska Šírava lake and is heading to other towns.
The projector, mounted in a historical bus, screens successful, mostly recent Czech and Slovak movies in an open air setting, usually in town squares and favourite holiday destinations.
The Czech selection includes movies such as music fiction Rok Ďábla (The Year of the Devil), musical Rebelové (The Rebels), tragicomedy Samotáři (The Loners), and comedy Pelíšky (Cosy Dens). Among Slovak films there is Šulík's Všetko čo mám rád (All that I Like). Before the feature movies,
short animated films made by students are being shown.

According to project coordinator Ľubica Mistríková the mobile projector has been enjoying more moviegoers per performance here in Slovakia than it was in the Czech Republic, where the bus was touring before.

The next towns the bus will stop in are Poprad (July 12-16), Trenčín (July 21-25), Žilina (July 26-30), Zvolen (August 3-6), Banská Bystrica (August 7-11), Trnava (August 12-15), Nitra (August 16-20), Piešťany (August 21-24) and Bratislava (in the Main Square, August 25-29).
The bus will also be at the Bažant Pohoda festival.
