Age ratings


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. 

18/18 rating

Under-18s may not attend films rated 18/18, even if they are accompanied by an adult.

Getting here

Allianz Cinema is located right at the beautiful lake of Zurich. Unfortunately there isn’t a lot of 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.

Babies and children

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.

Accessible cinema

Wheelchair accessibility

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 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.

Food & Drinks


Seats in the catering area cannot be reserved. 

VIP Ticket Upgrade
For an additional charge of CHF 88, we offer a three-course meal in the guest marquee, including drinks. And after the feast, you can enjoy the evening film in seats reserved for you.

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. But why not try our popcorn-flavoured ice cream? It’s ideal for cosy film nights.

Canine companions?

In principle, dogs are welcomed at cinema premises. However, we ask visitors to be responsible. Please ensure your furry friend does not disrupt the screening.

Ladies Night – just for ladies?

Of course men are welcome at our Ladies Night too! We and our women film-goers would be delighted to see any male guests at annabelle Ladies Night. 


A cinema right by the lake, far from the hustle and bustle of city life and with a view of the wonderful natural surrounds.
