CINEMAS au Pays du Mont-Blanc

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

Remember that for now, a PASS SANITAIRE is require to visit the cinema, and you may be asked to wear your mask at all times.
