The Filmtheater shows the revamped Giant Screen classic "Everest" on the largest screen in Switzerland in 4K. Let yourself be enchanted by the fascination of Mount Everest and accompany the protagonists through the extreme nature around the largest mountain in the world.

Everest is the dramatic true story of an expedition of four climbers on their way to the summit of Mount Everest, just days after the infamous tragedy of 1996, in which eight climbers died in a deadly storm. It's a story Jon Krakauer captured in his bestseller Into Thin Air. It is also the story of the world's highest mountain and the Sherpa culture and tradition that shape the Everest experience.

Originally released in 1998 as a box office hit and now digitally remastered for a new generation, Everest is above all a story of triumph over adversity and the true strength and resilience of the human spirit.
