You will also find jazz clubs, discos, art exhibits, poetry readings and live entertainment at an assortment of nightclubs.

Foreign- language (primarily American) feature films are shown (often with Czech subtitles), and there is a monthly film club that shows Czech films subtitled in English.

An excellent source for listings of these events is the English-language weekly newspaper, The Prague Post, and the monthly issue of Prehled (in Czech), which publishes a very detailed schedule of cultural activities and events.
