The Embassy of the Czech Republic presents director Martin Frič's classic film The Blue Star Hotel (Hotel Modrá hvězda) as part of the ongoing film and beer series on March 15, at 7 pm

Famed Czech actress Nataša Gollová plays a young poor maid who suddenly inherits a hotel in this classic comedy. When she mistakenly takes one hotel on the other side of town as her inheritance, she soon finds herself in an insane asylum. With misunderstandings cleared up, she heads to the Blue Star Hotel in District IV, rundown and having three tenants who reside there without paying the rent. Luckily, a wealthy young man (Oldřich Nový) desires to have his wedding at her hotel. He just might save her from her troubles. 

Directed by Martin Frič, 1941, 89 minutes, Czech with English subtitles
