Film di Natale.

La settimana prima di Natale e’ uscito in anteprima mondiale il nuovo episodio di: Star Wars e siccome mio marito e’ appassionato della saga,  siamo andati a vederlo.  Il film e’ un pretesto per un post sui cinema in Finlandia,  che come in molte altre parti del mondo,  sono ormai praticamente solo moderni multisala con proiezioni a tutte le ore,  in 2D o 3D.  Anche qui in Finlandia la gente va sempre meno al cinema e anche qui i cinemini di paese stanno scomparendo.

 Come vedete,  anche qui sono molto ben forniti di pop-corn,  snack e bevande per gli spettatori.  C’e’ anche un angolo di golosita’ un po’ piu’ “sane”:  e’ frutta secca.

La sala e’ comoda e le poltrone normalmente confortevoli.

Una curiosita’:  fra le pubblicita’ iniziali,  c’è anche un breve video in cui un pompiere da’ istruzioni su come smaltire i rifiuti,  non inquinare,  non ingorgare gli scarichi e non alimentare i topi buttando i residui di cibo nell’ambiente impropriamente!!  Repetita iuvant…

Sssstt!  Inizia il film…

Un aspetto totalmente differente dai cinema Italiani:  qui i film non sono doppiati,  sono tutti in lingua originale e con i doppi sottotitoli,  in finnico e in svedese,  perche’ la Finlandia e’ un paese bilingue.  Vengono doppiati solo i cartoni destinati ai bimbi che non sanno ancora leggere.

Niente spoiler,  naturalmente!  Ma…mi sembra di capire che gli unici protagonisti inossidabili della saga siano proprio questi due qui sotto…

 

Ultima cosa ma non meno importante:  il prezzo del biglietto e’ mediamente di 13 euro e si accede ai bagni solo digitando un codice riportato sul biglietto.

Christmas at the cinema.       A few days before Christmas,  we went to the cinema to see the latest episode of Star Wars,  as it it was the world premiere and hubby likes the saga.  The movie is an opportunity to talk about cinemas in Finland:  they are modern multiplex theatres,  with possibility of 2D or 3D view and many shows per day.   People go less and less to the cinema also here and smalltown cinemas are disappearing.

As you can see,  in the hall there is plenty of snacks,  pop-corn,  food and beverages for greedy spectators.  There is also a “healthier food”  corner where they sell dried fruits and nuts.

The seats are normally soft and comfy.

A curiosity:  among the ads prior to the movie,  also a short video of a fireman giving directions on how to dispose rubbish properly in everyday life;  not leaving them in the environment and feeding rats,  for instance;  not clogging up your sewers by throwing fat food to the drains;  not polluting.

Hush:  the movie starts!

A different feature from many other places in the world is that here in Finland we are in a bilingual country and subtitles of movies are in two languages:  Finnish and Swedish.  Movies are not dubbed,  only cartoons for very little children who cannot read.

Of course no spoiler in this post!  But in my opinion the only true highlanders in the saga are those two heaps of metal…

Last but not least:  price for a single ticket is about 13 euro and you access the toilet by entering a code number on your ticket.

  1. Hello, your movie theater looks very much like the one I go to. The candy, soda and popcorn are very pricey. Hubby and I will be see this movie, I hope it is worth the price. I hope you and your family had a happy Christmas! Enjoy your day and the week ahead!

    1. Hello, dear Eileen, the movie will be worth the price; it is just in the usual George Lucas’s style: not too violent, not too splatter, not too many monsters, some irony. Just the eternal fight between Good and Bad. Enjoy it!
