TIPS FOR ORGANIZING YOUR OWN EVENT

We have gathered some practical tips and other additional info to this page we hope you read when planning your own private event at our cinema. If you still have some questions to ask about hiring our cinema, please contact us at the following email: vuokraukset (at) cinemaorion.fi.

We warmly welcome you to Cinema Orion! We hope you have a great event at our cinema!

CHOOSING THE FILM

The safest choice to the film you want to watch at your event is the ones premiered in Finland during the past year or the films we are programming at the moment. You can also choose the movie from our catalogue: https://cinemaorion.fi/nonstop-timeless-katalogi/. The distributor will make the decision if a film is available and of the price which means we can't always guarantee the availability of the films. Please inform us about your wish for the film as soon as possible because the duration of the film also determines the time you need for your private event.

THE DURATION OF THE CINEMA HIRE

Private events can be organized mainly from Monday to Thursday, or on weekend before 14 o'clock.

Please take into account that the time you have hired the cinema includes the time you need for organising at the beginning of your event AND the cleaning at the end of your event.. Which means you can come to the cinema to start organising your event when your hire time begins. The final cleaning up must also be done before your hire time ends.

CATERING

We don't have our own catering service at Cinema Orion. However, we can ask our partners for offers or you can choose a service for your own liking. Please notice that catering services usually need approximately 45-60 mins to display their servings. This time is included in your hire time. Catering services won't do the final cleaning up unless agreed otherwise. Due to the limited storage place at the cinema, we don't have dishes for your servings but you can of course bring your own plates, glasses etc. In addition we cannot unfortunately offer a fridge to use unless agreed otherwise. Water supply point is by the public toilet (separated room from the toilet).

We have a selection of beverages and sweets, and face masks if needed, sold at the box office

EVENT

If you have a food/drink serving, we recommend you do that in the beginning of your event before the film screening, unless your event is the last one of the evening, in which case you can also have your serving after the screening.

SPACE

Our lobby area can fit approximately 60 people standing (less if you have catering tables in use) and our cinema hall has seats for 214 people. The host of the private event is responsible for the event and the suitable amount of people. However, Cinema Orion follows the recommendations of Regional State Administrative Agency for Southern Finland and we may have to limit the amount of people in our cinema due to that. We have to toilets in use for guests.

EQUIPMENT

We have six two-seat sofas in our lobby and in addition eight stools available. For tables we have three 130cm x 70cm x 72cm sized tables and four smaller round tables which are suitable for use with the sofas and stools in the lobby.

FINAL CLEANUP

We hope that you leave the cinema in the condition in which it was before your private event. The final cleanup includes recycling the trash and empty bottles in the bins, tidying the tables, cleaning the floor (of trash or stains, for example popcorns, chips, spilled drinks etc.) and cleaning up other surfaces if needed. We have the equipment for the cleanup. The staff of Cinema Orion will do the desinfection of the cinema. You can also buy the final cleanup service from us for the price of 100€ + VAT.
