Kino Sheryl’s screening schedule will include popular films, as well as art house films and films produced at the Department of Film, Television and Scenography. Thesis works by the department’s students will also be screened at Kino Sheryl.

’At Kino Sheryl, the average film viewer will gain completely kinds new experiences that are unlike anything offered elsewhere,’ states the cinema's Managing Director Ilmari Arnkil.

’Aalto University is investing in developing cinema. We want to highlight our film school’s high standard of expertise and the inner workings of our school to outsiders, as well as to test and research new methods for presenting and experiencing media,’ Professor Leinonen states.

The cinema’s VIP opening will be held on Wednesday 25 February. Director Roy Andersson will be present at the opening, and the VIP screening will be a preview of his film Kyyhkynen oksalla istui, olevaista pohtien. The cinema will open to the general public on 21 February.
