Having now expanded into a six-day festival, Night Visions: Maximum Halloween 3014 is being held from Tuesday 28 October until Sunday 2 November. Given that Maxim is out of business at the moment due to water damage, the event is being staged at Kinopalatsi.

This year promises more films than ever before, with a line-up of around 40 full-lengths and some 70 screenings.

Following her riotous performance back in 2012, super flight attendant Pam Ann is touching down in Finland again. Returning to the scene of the crime, Helsinki’s Savoy Theatre, everyone’s favourite in flight entertainment will be appearing on Thursday 23 October.

LENNY Kravitz has had nothing if not of a chequered career. Arriving at the end of the ‘80s, the first word on the dreadlocked singer-songwriter was that he was a revisionist. Less kind appraisals noted the similarity of many of his songs to those of an earlier time. However, given that he would perform the lion’s share of instruments on his recordings, he still managed to attain some respect even from his harshest critics.

THE summer festival season may have come and gone, but there’s no reason to think that the festival festivities are done with just yet this year. Held from 22 to 26 October, Supermassive Festival is bringing a swag of great underground sounds to Tavastia, The Circus, Ääniwalli, Korjaamo, Kuudes Linja and Semifinal.

The local Opera season has once again begun with a flourish of quality after a summer spent with its feet up, recuperating. Continuing the momentum, Le nozze di Figaro is being performed until 7 October, returning after being being enjoyed by receptive audiences earlier this year.

Composed in 1786 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart the opera is based on Pierre Beaumarchais’ stage comedy La folle journée, ou le Mariage de Figaro (1784).
