Kannusali and Nekka

At Kannusali, you can enjoy fantastic music clubs, KannuKino’s movies, family events and much more such as theatre and stand-up comedy. The multipurpose facilities are located in the Kannu civil defence shelter, a short walk  from the Espoo railway station in Espoon keskus. The tiered seating has room for 221 spectators and, thanks  to it being movable, there is room for a total of 300 people on the flat floor of the room.

The premises are not fully accessible. Kannusali and Nekka are located in a bomb shelter with a long and steep ramp, which is why we recommend that persons who use a wheelchair should have an assistant. The personnel will also assist if needed. You can reach us on 050 368 7931. The auditorium is equipped with an audio induction loop. Some Finnish films have subtitles for the hard of hearing. If the film has subtitles, this is mentioned in the event announcement.
