There are a few Finnkino theaters in Helsinki, with varying numbers of screens. One of them is seen in the photo below.

This one opened in 1999, in a former tennis courts building.

Rautakirja Group Milestones-1999

In the course of the year Finnkino Oy opened its first three multiscreen cinemas. The 14-screen cinema and entertainment centre at Helsinki’s former Tennis Palace was opened in February, the 10-screen Plevna Cinema in Tampere opened in April, and November saw the opening of the 5-screen concert and cinema complex Promenadikeskus in Pori.

I found this information about the tennis complex:

Tennispalatsi, built as an indoor tennis complex in 1938, has been renovated and converted into a cultural and entertainment center. It houses the Museum of Cultures, Helsinki City Art Museum, Finnkino’s cinema and a number of shops, restaurants and cafés.

Do you think the 14 screen theater is the one listed here?

The photo caption says Finland’s largest movie theater, so 14 screens would probably be the one.

Tennispalatsi (The Tennis Palace), Fredrikinkatu 35, Helsinki, Finland. Built 1937. Architect: Helge Lundström. Now a movie theater. The movie theater opened on February 26, 1999. This is a photo. I also think “Tennispalatsi” is part of this theaters name.
