Zurich's English going-out guide  


local festivals


ewz.stattkino is offering 2x2 free tickets for Koyaanisquatsi on Thursday, October 23. Just click on the CONTACT button on the upper right and send us an email with your name and address. First come, first served!

ewz.stattkino is not your usual film festival. The movies are enhanced depending on their content, potential for providing an innovative experience, according to the directors' whim, or all of the above – with new soundtracks, dance troupes, magic shows, or simultaneous ad-libbed lines. To gear up for the annual event in February, the people at ewz.stattkino are hosting a best-of series ongoing until October 26 at the Arthouse Le Paris movie theater and ewz-Unterwerk Selnau.
The remaining English movies include:
2001: A Space Odyssey, with film remix and live soundtrack by a 5-piece rock band
Bullitt, with live soundtrack by Whistler&Hustler
Koyaanisquatsi, with live DJ soundtrack
The Cotton Club, with swing party, a dance crash course and a live big band
