CINEMAS au Pays du Mont-Blanc

🏔 Au Pays du Mont-Blanc, there is one large cinema complex in Sallanches – the 🎥 CinĂ© Mont-Blanc, and then a scattering of smaller screens, which have lots of personality!  During the summer months, many of the communes screen 🎬 FREE outdoor films, so be sure to look at Tourist Office agendas for this lovely initiative.


Chamonix’s 🎥 CinĂ©ma VOX is a bit of an institution. There are VOST films to choose from and the venue is also used to host certain events: theatre, talks by guest speakers, shows for children, mountain films, the 🏔 Chamonix Adventure Festival . . .

🎬 good to know « Cinejeudi » : every Thursday the entrance is just 5€! (except during the school holidays, special screenings and 3D films); there is also a pass available for adults (50€ for 8 visits, valid over 6 months) and one available for 14 to 25 years olds (42€, valid over 6 months);

Sallanches’ ten-screened cinema is called the 🎥 CinĂ© Mont-Blanc and it is located on the main road that runs from the centre of town towards the motorway for Cluses and Geneva. It shows all the big blockbusters (with the occasional screening in VOST). There are also 3D films shown here.
