An audiovisual performance of the communal atmosphere and downfall of former block cinema Bio Rio. 
Bio Rio was a 125-seat block cinema in Käpylä in the 1930s and 1970s and current theater-space of Ilves-Teatteri.
Alli Huuskonen, the founder of Bio Rio, ran the cinema throughout its operation with the help of locals.
Bio Rio closed its doors in 1972 as television grew in popularity and there were no longer enough visitors to the cinema.
