So far the OpenAir film season at OrangeCinema has had an amazing run with fantastic weather and a great selection of  films – a fabulous way to spend an evening out in Zurich. Located as it is right next to the China Gardens you could even go for a swim in the lake before the programme starts – or spend time with friends in one of the bars or restaurants. On Friday night OrangeCinema screened “Now You See Me” – a great movie with lots of twists and turns to the plot and a perfect evening with cloudless skies, pleasant temperatures and a gentle lake breeze.

On Sunday evening there was the film Trance and tonight Kokowaah is showing. Highlights coming up this week include Breakfast at Tiffany’s which is a “Ladies Night” special evening on 7th August, The Silver Linings Playbook on Wednesday 8th and Argo on Thursday 9th. You can buy tickets online but they are selling out fast . You can also buy tickets at the “Tickethaus” – see photo below:

The Tickethaus is located at Bellevue tram station. If everything is sold out it’s worth considering queuing up on the night to see if you can get any when they release a few they have held back at 8.30pm.
