Part of our monthly movie screenings at Estonian House, retro-kino! looks back critically at older (pre)re-independence film made between 1912-1991 coinciding with the birth of Estonian film and the end of Soviet occupation in 1991.

This 77 year time period saw many changes and evolutions in the way in which cinema was made and controlled. Technology, ideology and creative censorship changed the way cinema was made and dispersed and these retro-kino! events seek to look back at this period with fresh, contemporary eyes.

Each screening will run from 5:00pm on the third Sunday of the month, with films starting around 5:30pm. Estonian feature films made between 1914-1991 are screened alongside a contemporary or classic thematically-relevant short contributing towards the commentary of each film.

Paired alongside our regular "kino! Movie Nights" held on the first Sunday of the month, "retro-kino!" occurs each third Sunday of the month.Tickets can be pre-purchased on TryBooking or at the bar on the night. The bar will be open with Estonian-style toasties available for purchase. Individual screening details will be released with each incoming retro-kino on our website and TryBooking event page!

Note: All films are subtitled in English. As a non-profit community organisation run by volunteers all proceeds of from this event go directly back into our community to help support our cultural activities for the next generation of Estonians.
