Going to the Orange Openair on the lake in Zurich has become something of a Summer ritual but now Orange has turned to salt. Salt Openair Cinema.
However, it’s in the same great location right at Zurichhorn on the lake just down from China Gardens. It takes place from 16th July to 16th August and the tickets went sale on 3rd July.
The opening film is While We’re Young. Although the film is sold out – read below our tip about the Abendkasse.
Tickets for all films cost CHF 24 (except for Das Parfum which costs CHF 54 as it includes a live orchestra). To keep you refreshed all tickets include a free ice cream. If you’re a student or apprentice or have a Kinokarte card you get a CHF 3 reduction on the price.
Doors open each night at 7pm and there is a great selection of food and drink on offer. Every night a small number tickets are put aside at the “Abendkasse” (even when the performances are sold out), so if you turn up early you may have a chance of getting tickets for films which have already sold out.
It’s a good idea to get there early too, as tickets are not numbered and you get a better choice of seat the earlier you arrive.
Where to Buy Tickets
You can buy tickets online or at the desk in Lintheschergasse near to Globus in Bahnhofstrasse. From 6th July the opening hours are from 11am to 2pm and from 4pm till 8pm.
