GstaadLife recommends: DVD rentals at Gstaad library
It's that Oscar time of year, and now that they have been lavished with a brace of Academy Award nominations, many of you are are checking cinema schedules and thinking about making time to see those movies you didn't get around to last year. But did you know that you can recent recent-run movies on DVD from the Gstaad library? (For that matter did you even know that Gstaad has a library?) Lovers of English-language media that you are, GstaadLife recommends the Gstaad Library, located on the first floor of the Kirchgemeindehaus opposite the Grand Hotel Bellevue. The way it works is that you sign up for a video card which is free. So long as you rent at least once in two years, you remain in the system. You can rent good, recent movies with an English language soundtrack for up to a week for just SFr 6 per film. At that price you can rent six movies for the cost of one night out at the cinema...and the film won't stop randomly in the middle! Click here for opening hours.
