A guide to all the films playing in Switzerland, from Aarau to Zweisimmen, from the Arena megaplex to the single-screen cinemas in Lugano, Delémont or the Prättigau valley. Information on all the latest films, including trailers, synopses, ratings and reviews in German, French and English, sorted and filtered according to your preferences, which you can save in your individual profile. Plus, your Watchlist of films you'd like to see, at the cinema, on an open-air screen or in bed.


A selection of the best recent films to rent or buy, plus classics, documentaries and exclusives, all in HD, almost always in the original version with subtitles in the language of your choice or dubbed in German or French. Also in development: a search engine for what is available from other streaming providers or on DVD and Blu-ray.


Reviews, videos, interviews, profiles on all streaming titles and many films now playing at the cinema - bonus material from our distribution partners combined with film reviews from our media partners züritipp, Tages Anzeiger, Süddeutsche Zeitung and Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. And above all: thousands of gems gleaned from the worldwide network of cinephiles.

We're far from done. Let us surprise you ...
