National Audiovisual Institute (KAVI) organizes regular film screenings at the Kino Regina cinema in Helsinki. Archival series cover just about everything from the earliest examples of film history to the latest noteworthy releases: classics and forgotten gems, extensive retrospectives illuminating genre history and changing times.

Film concerts and other special events such as seminars and lectures have attracted a wide following as part of KAVI’s programming. In addition to Kino Regina’s offerings KAVI’s screenings take place in nine other cities around the country.

Kino Regina’s ticket booth opens half an hour before each day’s first screening. You can also purchase tickets online whenever convenient for you.
