Film and Beer

Movie night
Please note: This event has already occurred.
Through the end of October, the Embassy of the Czech Republic's Mutual Inspirations Festival brings classic Czech films to the American Film Institute, the Library of Congress and the cool little Bistro Bohem on U Street. Stop by after work to catch "Cutting It Short (Postriziny)," a 1981 film based on the early life of the great 20th-century Czech author Bohumil Hrabal and directed by new wave auteur Jiri Menzel. Since "Cutting It Short" is a comedy set in a brewery, the beer will be flowing at this screening: Pilsner Urquell is giving away a free beer to the first 100 guests. Arrive early for a seat and a drink.
