News About This Theater

Kino Corso

The Kino Corso opened on 1st August 1934 with 1,300 seats and was a modern re-modeling of the historic Corso Theater which first opened in April 1900 as a variety theater.

Probably Zurich’s top first run venue…In my time - the early-1980s - a good triplex with a sizeable main screen with decent raked seating, a stadium styled smaller second screen and a 100-120 seat third screen…I saw “Excalibur”, “Private Benjamin”, “This is Elvis”, “The Beast”, “For Your Eyes Only” and “The Stuntman” here.

By 2009, there are now four screens operating. The seating capacities are for 750, 300, 120 and 198. The building also contains a nightclub.
