Her activity creates that wonderful holiday atmosphere that engulfs everyone at the Cinema Night venues. On Saturday, about 350 events took place at more than 120 venues – in cinemas, cultural centers, libraries, parks, theaters and museums. Our guests saw many films – from classics to premieres. Everyone had the opportunity to find what they liked. Moscow is not only the leader in film distribution, but also the center of domestic film production. The city is doing a lot for its development in cooperation with film studios, renowned filmmakers, young filmmakers, who will have to create a film chronicle of the capital in the near future.

In addition, the brightest songs from the film were performed live to the accompaniment of a grand piano.
Hits, premieres and timeless classics
A series marathon was held in the Zvezda cinema of the Moschino chain. The audience saw not only the hits of Russian TV channels and online platforms, but also the premieres. The cinema was a COVID-free zone – viewers could enter the hall only if they had QR codes that were scanned at the entrance.

In addition, the Ministry of Culture of Russia and the Cinema Fund traditionally presented the most popular domestic films of this year (The Little Humpbacked Horse by Oleg Pogodin, The Palm by Alexander Domogarov Jr. and Fire by Alexei Nuzhny).
Cinema Night has become a bright film event this summer.
