In the beginning of the 20th century a Russian merchant sold home-made candies at Eerikinkatu 11 and the basement of the building was used for selling firewood. The building was renovated in 1966 and is known as Rakennusmestarien Talo (building engineers' house).

We have now reconstructed the basement’s movie theatre, formerly known as Andorra, for new use. Hall number one has been left as a theatre and named as Kino. Hall number two and lobby have been renovated as Dubrovnik Lounge & Lobby bar, named after a neonlight from Aki Kaurismäki’s movie “Drifting Clouds”.

Kino seats 183 spectators and you can also reserve it together with Dubrovnik Lounge & Lobby, situated on the same floor.
