- The Washington Times - Tuesday, January 9, 2007

Not many people know the name of the Czech equivalent to America’s prestigious Oscar. (Why, it’s the Czech Lion, of course). A new film series, “Lions of Czech Film,” at the Avalon Theatre (5612 Connecticut Ave. NW) aims to change all that. The program, presented in collaboration with the Embassy of the Czech Republic, kicks off tonight with director David Ondricek’s “Loners (Samotari),” a film about twentysomethings living in Prague. The movie, in Czech with English subtitles, screens at 8. Tickets, priced from $6.50 to $9.75, are available at the box office only. Call 202/966-6000 or log on to www.theavalon.org.
