Kinoautomat; One Man and His House

The first interactive cinema ever! Come and vote for your story.


Jan Rohac/Pavel Juracek/Vladimir Svitacek, Czechoslovakia, 1966, 63’


A huge hit at EXPO 67 in Montreal, Kinoautomat is the first ever interactive cinema system created by a talented ensamble of Czech New Wave filmmakers. It centres around the hapless Mr. Novák (played by comedian Miroslav Hornicek), who finds himself cought up in various situations which represent moral dilemmas. In a specially ‘voting cinema’, the audience members could alter the trajectory of the film at key intersections. As an part of the original experience, Horn94ek himself would act out a moderating role, providing a human interface to the film’s branching structure. The film was last presented in 1974 making this the first production of Kinoautomat fo 31 years
