The theatre contains various snack stands and games. You can find discounts on tickets on weekday afternoons.
Orion belongs to the Finnish Film Archives and is located a short walk away from the city center. The theater's gorgeous old-fashioned décor and unbelievably soft, wide seats have made it a movie buffs' Mecca. Another reason for Orion's popularity is of course the great variety of classic films it screens. The theater has three seasons (autumn, spring and summer) each with a different program. Every season sees a variety of film series, for instance by the same director or with the same theme. Orion usually screens three films a day. Information on the daily screenings can be obtained from the webpages of the Finnish Film Archives, in Helsingin Sanomat and at the theater. To see a film you need to have a house ticket, valid for six months. The cinema has no snack stand. The box office opens half an hour before the first screening.
