Cinema
“Best movie theatre in Helsinki. Kinopalatsi's lobby combines old and new. The box office and interios next to Kinopalatsi 2 have been restored to resemble the original 1930's appearance with mirrorwalls and mahogany pillars. Also the other auditoriums and lobbies are modern yet they respect the traditions of the cinema. The lobbies combine cherry wood flooring, marble and glass surfaces.”
