Indoor entertainment at the Vox Cinema

Posted on Updated on

Last year was quite fraught for Chamonix’s Vox cinema.  At the end of 2010 there was a threat of closure, and petitions were generated.  Thankfully the “Community of the Chamonix Valley Communes” agreed to pay a grant of 70,000 euros per year for 3 years, ending 2013. This was with the proviso that the management will invest in digital and 3D projectors soon after this period.

Due to the generous donations it means that English and French speaking people alike have the opportunity to watch current and classic films from around the world each day from around 4pm.  Fitting for a cinema located in the Alps it also runs a programme of mountain related films mid evening a few times a week in July and August.  The programme is varied, catering for adults and children alike on its 3 screens.  So even if the summer weather is a little inclement you can retreat into the cosy old cinema, ditto the winter.

The cinema is easy to find, opposite the Tourist Office, near the main square, 22 Cour Bartavel  +33 (0)4 50 53 03 39.  You can’t miss its great mural full of actors and film sets.  Ticket are 8 Euros for adults 6 Euros for children.

For other ideas during inclement weather try this or this.
