The lights dim, the theatre goes silent. Then the big screen lights up and transports the audience to another world. Seeing a film in a cinema is a very special experience. In his film, Jouko Aaltonen follows the tracks of that movie magic. He and his crew spent more than three years on a pilgrimage to big screen temples all across the country, from old ones – some of which are bowling alleys or restaurants today – to new ones. Everywhere they went they met film fans and filmmakers who spoke passionately and with humour about their love of cinema. Aaltonen weaves a panorama of Finland’s cinema culture from the 1920s through the 1950s’ heyday of movies to the digital age, which has been a particular blessing for small movie theatres far from the big city.
