Event Cinema shows are far from traditional movies. Finnkino has screened special shows called Event Cinema since 2008.
In the early years, the program consisted of opera, theater, and ballet shows that were screened live in our cinemas via satellite. The entire 2008–2009 season of the New York Metropolitan Opera was available at all of our cinema locations. As the shows have become more popular, the number of MET Opera and Bolshoi Ballet shows has constantly increased.
Event Cinema shows are often produced specifically for movie theaters, and they cannot be seen as such anywhere else. The shows are often live performances transmitted via satellite or as recent recordings. There are only a limited number of shows, but the tickets are available in good time.
As screening technology has been digitized in recent years, we have been able to bring a wide range of content to the silver screen. The Event Cinema program has expanded a lot, and it currently consists of not only opera, ballet, and theater but also art documentaries, concerts, musicals, rock/pop music recordings, and even eSports.
Finnkino informs about the Event Cinema program via its own channels, on web pages, newsletters, and in social media.
