kinostalgia – a nostalgic tribute to old cinemas

2006

In 1960 there were 49 movie theaters in Helsinki. In 2006 there are only 8 left. The exhibition Kinostalgia is a nostalgic tribute to the old cinemas - the Holga-photographs are taken in fall 2006 in four of the oldest remaining movie theaters of Helsinki: Bio Rex, Orion, Maxim and Forum. Displayed in a solo exhibition at Galleria Lasipalatsi, Helsinki, Finland in September 2006.
