Summer is CinéTransat

Whoever said there’s no fun to be had in Geneva as everything is just too expensive has probably never experienced one of the city’s best summer events: CinéTransat. If you’re in town from the 11th of July to the 18th of August 2013, make sure you pop round at least once.

CinéTransat is one of the Geneva’s best-loved summer festivals and it’s easy to understand why: every evening from Thursday to Sunday they show a selection of great movies free of charge in the wonderful setting of the Parc de la Perle du Lac. You can get there a bit earlier of course, bring your own picnic and enjoy a lovely evening out with family and friends.

But CinéTransat is much more than just another open-air summer cinema. It is fundamentally a convivial, shared experiences, which is as much about fun and hunour as it is about watching some of the best-loved movies ever made.

The team behind CinéTransat also organize a series of theme and karaoke nights: from Indiana Jones to Zombies and even a romantic picnic competition, make sure you dress the part ! Find out more about CinéTransat in our 2012 interview with founder and organizer Dan Acher.
