Enter Les Cinémas Capitole’s weekly draw to win free tickets to their Tuesday Movies English films throughout June (see below)

Following the recent installation of digital projectors at Les Cinémas Capitole in Nyon, it will now be possible to view yet more English movies at this popular local cinema.

Under the programme heading, Tuesday Movies, the cinema will now show on every Tuesday evening an English-speaking film that has not been shown at the cinema in Nyon before.  To introduce the new initiative to the local community, and to encourage more new customers to try out its cinemas, the programming team is offering knowitall.ch clients the opportunity to win one of 10 free tickets being offered to us for each of its four Tuesday Movies running throughout the month of June.

Conveniently located just a few minutes walk from Nyon station, and with easy parking nearby at the Place Perdtemps, the newly launched cinema is expected to draw an increasing number of visitors from the local expat community.

The cinema will offer four programs per day of which one will always be in English. Explaining his decision to offer more English movies, Program Manager, Jean-Pierre Grey says, “We realize this is a big commitment to make for a relatively small cinema with just two auditoriums. However, English speakers represent such a large part of this community and it is important that we satisfy their needs as well.”

Describing his future plans, Jean-Pierre adds, “We have a number of ideas to improve not just the number of English-speaking films we present, but the way we present them too. Just one of the options we are looking at is the possibility of launching an English film club, showing restored Hollywood Classic Films. This will be possible as soon as we have completed our plans to install HD (as well as 3D) technology in the near future.”

If, however, you fancy watching something with a little more action, the equally popular, and award-winning film, “The Fighter” will also feature in this week’s English program. Winning Oscars for both the best supporting actor and actress, this is another film not to be missed!

Cinéma Capitole - Nyon is now owned by Premium Entertainment Geneva, which also runs the Astor Film Lounge in Geneva, another new cinema with a difference, which we recently mentioned on knowitall.ch.
