Watch Movies on Zurichsee with OrangeCinema

Photo from OrangeCinema.ch

I have thought twice, make that at least thrice, about posting this as I know that getting tickets for this beauty is going to be tough enough as it is, but alas, I will follow Zurika's lead and share the wealth. For goodness sakes, who am I kidding, I found out about it from her in the first place! ;)

According to This non-American Life, for one month during the summer OrangeCinema puts on an open-air cinema on Zürich lake.

Since I have a very big soft spot in my heart for open-air cinemas (can you say Sunset Cinemas in Perth, renamed Moonlight Cinemas, where Jace put the moves on me for the first time... yeah, big soft spot), I am keen to be the first in line to get tickets when they come available because nothing is better than watching a movie out under the stars. Wait, yes there is - watching a movie out under the stars on the lake. Yes! SCORE!

And well, from the website it sounds like July 1st is the first sales day. The schedule isn't listed yet, but I am assuming that all the movies are in German without the usual English option with German subtitles. But perhaps I'll be surprised and find something in English that Jace will enjoy. (Note, in general, in Swiss movie schedules an 'E' by the movie means that the movie is in English with German and probably French or Italian subtitles. If no 'E', then no English. Go it?)

Either way, get in line on July 1st if you're interested - just let me get tickets first, ok? ;)

Thanks for the comment you left on our blog. I am now a convert and read your blog religiously. Very cool to read. Yeah, I love the Swiss open air cinemas. They do such a good job. Have fun in Lugano and Venice, also two places on my list to visit. Let us know what is good to see there!

Michelle, thanks for the comment. You flatter me. ;)

I love the chocolate log on your blog and am totally going to copy it one day. (I hope you don't mind.) Although I fear that our family of two would totally blow your family out of the chocolate water! ;) Let's not make that a challenge though - we just lost all sorts of weight due to healthier living here, I wouldn't want to go back now... or would I? ;)

they usually show 5-6 movies in english with subtitles .. lots of other cities do them too, so maybe you can travel around CH in a open-air kino circuit! :)
