Pathé Balexert in Geneva has IMAX theatre

Pathé Balexert in Geneva has IMAX theatre

Mere weeks ago, I was lamenting the fact that there were no IMAX theaters near Geneva, Switzerland. The closest one I could identify is in Lyon. (which I still haven’t visited! )

But, Wednesday night while driving around after Volleyball practice, I was at a stop light and saw a poster for the new Hunger Games 2: Catching Fire movie. The poster proudly proclaimed that it was being shown at Pathé Balexert in the new, only-one-in-Swiss-Romande IMAX theatre!

Woo-hoo!


Today, I had to go to Divonne from Geneva.

Recently, I’ve been dreading this, because the person I had to see was a little up the hill towards Gex and then to the right. Normally, that’s OK, but for the last few months, there has been some major reconstruction of the road that crosses the border from Switzerland into France, forcing traffic to go *far* to the left and then up and then back – a long rectangular detour.

Today, the road is open again! Although there is still construction going on everywhere. Here’s hoping it’s not the end.
