This housed one of the biggest inter-war cinemas in Prague – the Metro Biograph. Today it has been redeveloped as a theater with the support of its owners and the operators of the Image theater. History took its toll on the building and a thorough renovation was required but it is a unique opportunity to get an insight into the backstage of a theater.
