English-language Cinema in Geneva

Find details of what's on at the movies today, and in the near future. The cinema programmes from Geneva to Lausanne, Vaud, Valais, Neuchatel, Jura, Fribourg, not forgetting the French cinemas across the border in Ain and Haute-Savoie...

Movies shown in their original language are listed as being in VO (version originale). It is always a good idea to check with the cinema to verify that a movie is being shown in VO.

  • Be aware that a movie may be in VO but in a language other than English - it is always a good idea to check the film's language with the Internet Movie Database, a complete resource where you can also find out more about the film, its director, the actors and even read reviews and see what awards have been won.
