Open air summer cinema

Ciné transat

During the summer months of July and August, the shore of Lake Geneva is transformed into an open-air cinema. Films are projected onto a giant screen in the beautiful park of Perle du Lac - it's difficult to imagine a more beautiful location to watch a film! Showings take place at the end of the week and over the weekend. Films start around sunset - between 9pm and 10pm - so make sure that you're not planning on getting an early night! A variety of internationally acclaimed films are shown. For films not in the French language, French subtitles are provided, offering the perfect opportunity to practice your French-language skills!

To add to the enjoyment, some films are accompanied by 'theme-nights'. Last year (2016), the showing of the American film 'Rocky', starring Sylvester Stallone as a budding boxer, featured a mini boxing arena, as well as a communal boxing workout before the film! Deckchairs are provided at a small charge. If you prefer you can bring your own chairs along or even put a rug down and sit on the grass. Just remember to bring some warm clothes and blankets, as even on the hottest of summer days, nights can be quite chilly! Picnicking is encouraged and designated areas for barbequing are provided, all adding to the fun-filled atmosphere! Whatever film you choose to watch, a trip to the open-air cinema will prove to be an unforgettable experience and just one other thing... it's free!
