Film and Beer Series: Waiter, Scarper!

Date: 16 June 2015 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM, Venue: Bistro Bohem

In this classic comedy, a handsome young bookseller finds himself in a difficult financial situation, manifesting from the high alimony he must pay for his skirt chasing. Being mistaken for a waiter sparks an idea that just might get him out of his jam.

About the Director:
Ladislav Smoljak was born in Prague in 1931 and unsuccessfully applied to Prague’s DAMU (Theatre Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts) in 1952. As a result, he graduated in 1957 with a degree in mathematics and physics and became a teacher. Smoljak’s most profound body of work was started in 1966 when Smoljak, Svěrák, and Šebánek established the famous “Theatre of Jára Cimrman.” Smoljak’s activity as a director, screenwriter, and actor resulted in movies such as Mareček, Pass Me the Pen! (Marečku, podejte mi pero!), Seclusion Near a Forest ( Na samotě u lesa ) and Waiter, Scarper! (Vrchní, prchni!)
