Cinemas In Zurich

Want to see films in English at the Cinema?

There are plenty of cinemas in Zurich showing films in English. Take a look here to get some ideas on where to go. Just to let you know that often (in fact usually) there is an intermission during the film when you have a 10 minute break to get refreshments. Please note that they can also be quite strict about proof of age (and adhering to film age limits) when taking children to the cinema.

If you’re looking for films in English language (rather than dubbed for example) then you need to check that it states EN after the film.
