A cinema station, built inside the former railway station Ķeipene, was created by the staff and associates of the Film Forum Arsenāls. In the waiting room, there is an exhibition dedicated to the film director Sergei Eisenstein. The room is decorated with pages from a phone book on the walls and Eisenstein’s drawings in the windows. There are environmental installations in the vicinity of the station – a lighthouse with mailboxes dedicated to the documentary film director Juris Podnieks, a gigantic table for the prodigies of filmmaking, a tunnel made of movie frames and an environmental installation Potemkin’s Well created as an underground exhibition hall. The old railway station is the only place where a section of the railway between Riga and Ērgļi has been preserved.

A campfire site and tent places are available in summer.

The installation Potemkin’s Well is open to visitors for guided excursions from May 1 until November 1. Booking is required.
