    It's the cinema that makes films great

The Cinema nel Parco celebrates its premiere with the Locarno Film Festival.

Castello del Sole shows films in the most beautiful location on Lake Maggiore.

It's the cinema that makes films great. On July 14, the Castello del Sole Ascona, in collaboration with the Locarno Festival, will launch its first open-air cinema.

Classics such as "La Dolce Vita" are shown on the large screen in the spacious hotel park. The unique view of Lake Maggiore at night is included and those who like it even more romantic can take the hotel's own Frauscher boat home by moonlight or book their room at Castello del Sole.

From 7:15 pm, the garden grill restaurant serves Ticino specialities such as Brasato or Paella Ticinese. Price from CHF 70 per person including starter, main course and dessert. Admission to the cinema is included in the dinner. The movie starts at 9:15 pm.
