After a lighter 2021 edition entitled “Le CinéTransat secret”, the Geneva event will once again be at home at the Perle du lac for more than a month. Always adorned with huge karaoke and original themes, the film evenings offer great classics, such as Save Willy (16th of July), terminator (July 23) or Yes man (13 August). It will also be an opportunity to discover Italian feature films (Puoi baciare la sposa, on July 21) or the Japanese animation film Your Name (21 Aug).

For children we will rather choose The Minions 2: Once Upon a Time Gru (13, 18 and 30 July or 21 and 30 August). When you consult the program, be sure to check the language of the film: the feature films are indeed shown on different dates, in VO or VF. Our personal favourite? The Duke, a brilliant British comedy to be screened on August 22, 2022.
