Visitors of the city tour featuring quintessential Helsinki bars&cafés got to experience real movie magic when classic Aki Kaurismäki movie scenes came to life in their original locations with the help of augmented reality.


Finnish travel media company Tripsteri launched a city tour in their travel app, “Kaurismäki joints”. The tour listed classic Helsinki bars&cafés&restaurants featured in movies directed by iconic Finnish movie director Aki Kaurismäki, a well-known and loved director all over the world.

Together will Arilyn, an idea was born. The movies were enhanced with augmented reality through coasters found at the bars in the tour.  When scanned, the coasters revealed an old TV displaying the names of the legendary Helsinki joints. When selected, the scene filmed at the joint was displayed on the screen of the TV, giving the viewer an insight in to what the bar looked like decades ago on the movie set.

A different kind of city tour, enhanced with AR for an unforgettable experience, blending the past and the present and immersing viewers in classic Helsinki joints which many a legend has frequented over the past decenniums.

One of the movies featured in the tour, Calamari Union, was also shown at the movie theatre Riviera in Helsinki's Kallio.
