Allianz Openair Cinema Zurich Summer 2016

114th July – 14th August


Salt Openair Cinema

The annual Openair cinema tradition continues in Zurich once again this year, but with a change of name as for 2016 the main sponsor is Allianz (not Orange or Salt as in the previous couple of years). This openenair film extravaganza will take place from July 14th to August 14th. 

All the film showings will take place at Zürichhorn, a  great location right on the waters edge in China gardens. Because parking is limited, it is best to travel by public transport directly to Tiefenbrunnen and it’s a short walk from there.

The opening film, ‘Sing Street’ will be playing in English on July 14th at 9:35 pm. The musical/comedy has received excellent reviews, and follows the story of a young boy in 1980s Dublin.

Over the course of the film festival, dozens of films will be played, and the best thing is that most of which will be in ENGLISH! Here is a list of all the other films which will be playing:
