Local entertainment As Switzerland's largest city, Zurich has many excellent theatres and concert venues as well as its own opera house. There are a number of amateur English theatre companies which occasionally stage performances around town. You can also check the Zurich Schauspielhaus (DE), which sometimes features plays in French or English. There are over 20 cinemas in the city of Zurich. Films are usually screened in the original language with subtitles. The language is indicated by a letter after the film's title: E for English, D for German, etc. Booking and time schedules for cinemas can be checked on Kitag and Cineman. There are also several "art house theatres" (DE) that feature foreign films and documentaries. For the ones who love music, Rote Fabrik is the place to be. With a fabulous lakeside location, this multifaceted performing-arts centre stages rock, jazz and hip-hop concerts, original-language films, and theatre and dance performances. There's also a bar and a restaurant. Take bus 161 or 165 from B├╝rkliplatz. If you fancy a special experience riding through the streets of Zurich on a vintage tram with some fondue or maybe some specialities from the Ticino area in Switzerland, the following might be of interest; Fondue Tram Zurich & Ticino Tram Zurich.
