Great movies in their original language
There are almost 40 cinema screens in Basel, showing all the great Hollywood movies as well as many European and foreign films. All the films are shown in their original language, with German and French subtitles – a Swiss specialty that makes the movies all the more enjoyable.

In summer, there are open air screens everywhere - in parks, on castles and near swimming pools. The main event certainly is the Allianz Cinema. During two weeks in July and August, major movies are shown on the Münsterplatz. There are also special nights, premieres and previews. For those who prefer smaller movies, the Neues Kino shows older movies on the roof of an old corn tower in the Rhine harbour.
