Finnkino Cinemas, Finland’s leading cinema chain, is to digitise all of its cinemas across the country in a deal with Arts Alliance Media (AAM).

The vpf deal will cover all of Finnkino’s 88 screens across 14 sites, and will see each screen converted to DCI-compliant digital cinema over the next 18 months.

The deal helps us to bring our cinemas to the digital era, and ensures a fast roll-out, which is positive in many ways to the whole industry. Full digitalisation creates new opportunities for developing the cinemas, operations and concepts to the benefit of our customers and our company.”
