ORION: The final resistance of a classic cinema?

Coronavirus outbreak has started in Finland since March 2020. Thousands of confirmed cases and thousands of businesses that have suffered from this pandemic. We at Entrepreneurs of Finland want you to know that nobody is alone, we are all in this together. And only by staying united, we will thrive against all odds!

It’s a great pleasure for us to tell Cinema ORION’s story to the world. There is so much love, passion, and pride that people have put into saving this iconic gem of Helsinki.


Elävän kuvan keskus ELKE ry was founded in the spring of 2016. The purpose of the association is to promote film culture. ELKE promotes the position of films as a vibrant, artistically high-quality and pluralistic art, increases the diversity of cinematographic and audiovisual art, and expands its audience base. ELKE has been running Cinema Orion since 2019.

The program of Cinema Orion is combining new European art house films, film classics, and curated series. The Cinema is also home to many film festivals and events based in Helsinki.
