The Bourbaki is a cinema - but it's much more than that, it's a lively cultural crossroads. When you walk into the Bourbaki you'll immediately notice the circular layout - the spacious Bourbaki bar/bistro is arranged on a huge wooden floor-ring around the central column. The bustling but relaxed atmosphere make this a great place for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine before a film, or at any other time of the day. They also have sweets, snacks and a small selection of meals. Go upstairs and you'll find the Bourbaki panorama - built in 1889 it's the reason for the circular layout. The panorama is a kind of 19th century precursor to the cinema, and absolutely worth a visit. Go down the stairs to find the four cinema screens, where mainly studio films are shown, including many Swiss productions. The ticket counters for the panorama and the cinema are on ground level. The ground floor is also home to the kunsthalle luzern, an art museum which focuses on provocative, contemporary art, showing international and Swiss artists (www.kunsthalleluzern.ch).
