Hmm… interesting request. But no judging, so here we are: For mainstream movies check Kitag. Riffraff has a good agenda of independent movies, Xenix and Uto (the oldest cinema in town) special reprises.
Riffraff and Xenix are nice places for a beer or a quick bite too – you’re even allowed to bring your drinks into the cinema hall.
For those of you on a budget: In Zurich, Monday night is cinema night! Tickets are available for 13 Swiss Francs only – a bargain!
Our favourite and one of the most important theatres in the German-speaking world is the Schauspielhaus Zürich. At Pfauen, they perform more traditional and well-known classics whilst at their other venue Schiffbau, you can enjoy rather new and debut performances.
The Theater Neumarkt in the historic quarters of Zurich is a modern playhouse performing relevant plays with a strong potential to surprise and enthrall the audience.
For lovers of modern-dance, experimental plays and genre-independent comprehensive projects, Theater Gessnerallee is the place to be.
And last but not least, Miller’s Studio at the mill Tiefenbrunnen offers the most entertaining theatre sports evenings.
