In the cinema's in Vasa, subtiling is done in both Swedish and Finnish (Finnish line above Swedish). So, when watching TV after being to a cinema, you have to concentrate just to remember reading every line, not just the lower or upper (whenever there's two lines that is). That's annoying. otherwise I enjoy reading subtitles.
