There is a lot  to look forward to this week; including outdoor movies, festivals in Pâquis, Oktoberfest, an Australian festival and more! Ciné Chaises Longues: If you like outdoor cinemas, then grab your sweaters and blankets, and get ready to join this great initiative by Pré en Bulle – an association created to reinforce the community bond in Les Grottes. They will be showing 3 movies from the Soviet Union, from the 1920s. Films start under the stars at 8.30pm. I will be there early to grab a drink and to taste some pirojki (a Russian and Ukrainian specialty). The bar opens at 7.45pm on Rue de la Sibérie (Square Berger). The good news is that they will show the films even if it’s raining, but please note that there will then be a change of location. (Rain Location: Ilot 13 on rue de Montbrillant). Les Grottes. September 26-28.   Sonopack Festival and Les Pâquis sont à la rue: two big events in Pâquis this weekend! Sonopack aims to support local artists, while also collaborating with International ones. Fantastic DJs will be mixing all styles of music at Salle du Môle, Silencio, La Petite Reine, L’Aiglon and other venues (check out the full program here). […]
