The Bond Bulletin about the event:
“A screening of a James Bond film is always something very special. Seeing your hero on the big screen is such a big difference compared to a Blu-Ray at home. Plus, you can meet fans and maybe make some new friends along the way. As 2015 is the 50th anniversary of ‘THUNDERBALL’, the fourth film in the James Bond series will be celebrated in style across the globe. The first country to do so is FINLAND.” (See more here in English, and here in German)
