According to Director of Film Europe Ivan Hronec: “EDISON caters to a cultural audience that wants something more and needs help in the form of a quality movie map. It offers a curatorial selection of films, debates on topics, and context.”

Edison Filmhub is located in a functionalist building, featuring state-of-the-art projection equipment, comfortable armchairs, and a design café. It is the very first cinema that opens not only as a traditional cinema but also a video-on-demand platform, or “virtual video rental,” says Hronec.

The Edison transformer station, where the cinema is located, is a significant functionalist building. In 1930 it was supplemented by one of the first kinetic sculptures in Czechoslovakia by sculptor Zdeněk Pešánek. The sculpture itself has not been preserved, but its image sets the tone for the interior of Edison Café.
