The Maltese Falcon at Tugendhat

Last week, before I went to Dubrovnik, a few of us headed off to movie night at Villa Tugendhat.  They do this sort of thing every so often but you have to act fast because it is kept to a small number of participants.

This time we went to see The Maltese Falcon.  The film was shown in English with Czech subtitles.  I tried to keep up with reading the Czech.  It was interesting to see how all of the 1940's slang was translated in to Czech.

Roughly 30 people on folding chairs, in the living room of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, watching Humphrey Bogart with Czech subtitles.  Not a bad way to spend a Monday night in Brno.
