The age ratings for our films are set by the Swiss Film Commission for the protection of young people. You can view a detailed explanation of the age ratings here.
Minimum ages for screenings
Children less than two years younger than the minimum age specified for a screening may attend if they are accompanied by an adult.
Minimum age and accompanying adults
Visitors at our film screenings must be at least 4 years old. Children under 6 must be accompanied by an adult.
Under-18s may not attend films rated 18, even if they are accompanied by an adult.
Allianz Cinema is located right at the beautiful lake of Zurich. Unfortunately there is no parking space available around Zurichhorn. It’s best to walk or cycle here. It’s also easy to get here by public transport. You can find all your travel information here.
Please check our age ratings. We’re happy to make an exception for babies, but we ask our visitors to be responsible – please ensure that your little one does not disrupt the screening.
Great cinema is accessible to all. Allianz Cinema has a disabled toilet and wheelchair spaces. Book tickets for your preferred film night in advance and then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org detailing the film, location and date you’ve booked tickets for, as well as the number of accompanying persons and (if necessary) required wheelchair spaces.
Audio description & subtitles
The programme includes a list of films with audio descriptions and/or subtitles that can be accessed via the GRETA app.
Seats in the catering area cannot be reserved.
Picnics & food from home
Film-goers may not picnic or bring their own food or drinks. Our catering partners thank you for your understanding and hope you enjoy our truly cinematic experience for your taste buds.
Vegan & vegetarian options
There are tasty culinary treats in store for everyone – including vegans and vegetarians, who have plenty of great options.
You won’t find popcorn here. Why? Because our cinema is outdoors and popcorn scattered on the ground attracts birds and other non-paying creatures.

In principle, dogs are welcome at cinema premises. However, we ask visitors to be responsible. Please ensure your furry friend does not disrupt the screening.
A cinema right by the lake, far from the hustle and bustle of city life and with a view of the wonderful natural surrounds.

Tickets are available to buy at the box office from 7 pm. But it’s better to be safe than sorry, so we recommend booking in advance!
Box office - sold out
Unfortunately, there are no more tickets available at the box office for sold-out screenings. With a bit of luck, very last tickets will be sold shortly before the start of the film. This decision is made at very short notice and there is no guarantee.

Unfortunately, you cannot exchange or return purchased tickets. The good news is, if you’re lucky, you’ll find a new buyer for your tickets on our Facebook-Page.
