Open-Air Movie Nights

In addition to the fabulous open-air music festivals that take place in and around Switzerland during the summer months, there are also great opportunities to watch movies under the stars. Because watching an exciting new movie or great classic film with family and friends out-of-doors on a beautiful warm summer evening is such an enjoyable experience, the idea has really caught on, with a multitude of movie nights and film festivals in the region and beyond; from small weekend events in quaint villages and parks and the outdoor arthouse film festivals, to the 3-week open-air Allianz Cinema on Basel’s Münsterplatz. To learn more about some of the outdoor film events that are happening in and around Basel this summer, check out the individual entries on the calendar.
