Briefly worked at the satirical theater Evening Brno and in amateur theater X, that do not exist anymore. The most remarkable period of his job was working in Brno (formerly Prostejov) HaDivadlo during the years 1978 - 1993. He significantly had helpedto create the Brno cultural scene as a director during his career. Since the mid-80s Arnošt Goldflam began to be regular part of the cast in minor television and film roles. He appeared for example at the czech classis movies as  Něřný Barbar, Vyžilý boudník, or Bumerang, but the greatest acclaim with the film Dědictví aneb Kurvahošigutntág and Lotrando a Zubejda, where he appeared in a small role of trader with Czech jewelery. Although Goldflam began to appear in small roles in the czech theater Na provázku already during his university studies. He considers his acting career as  marginal.
