which romantic movie will get women dreaming, which thriller will send shivers down men’s spines, which comedy will have the world in howls and which children’s film will draw the whole family into the cinema. Our current cinema highlights are a trend barometer that we draw up in collaboration with the cinema platform OutNow.CH – without any claim to exhaustiveness, but with a lasting claim to likelihood.
