The Embassy of the Czech Republic presents director Josef Gruss's classic film The Stone Table Inn (Hostinec u Kamenného stolu) as part of the ongoing film and beer series on April 19, at 7 pm

Two sisters travel on vacation with their family to the Stone Table Inn, located in a small spa town. They hope for a bit of excitement this year. Meanwhile, two brothers unexpectedly find themselves running the inn of their uncle after their aunt runs off to pursue an actor. One serves as manager while the other is tasked with the role of head waiter. They switch roles every week but are unaccustomed to everyday work. They hope to woo and capture the fancy of the two sisters. Will they be able to tempt the two sisters into an outing that just might steal their hearts?

Directed by Josef Gruss, 1948, 103 min., Czech with English subtitles
