Only For Oscars

There were just 2 cinemas in Moscow 7 years ago which played movies in its original language. I remember tickets were about RM58 per person. One was the American Cinema in Hotel Radisson and the other was Dome Cinema in Renaissance Hotel. The former has closed down a couple of years ago, not sure about the latter.

Currently, there are more and reasonable in price. We were lucky to catch Slumdog Millionaire this afternoon! This cinema on Ulitsa Pakrovka (nearest station M.Kurskaya) is called 35mm. It shows Russian movies in the Main Halls and foreign award-winning movies in the Small Hall.

Undubbed with Russian subtitles. Not just movies from Hollywood but films that have won Best Picture from Cannes to San Sebastian and other Film Festivals.

Price range 200/250/300pyb

Hahahahaha we thought this shady place was the entrance

Turkish trying to be funny :)

The hall was 80% full with patrons!

Slumdog Millionaire truly deserves the Best Picture and 7 other wins from the Academy Awards. I don't remember how many times I cried throughout the movie. I have nothing negative to say about this brilliant piece.

It is about Jamal Malik, a Mumbai teen who grew up in the slums. He participated in the gameshow Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and successfully reached the final question for 20mil Rupees. He is arrested for suspiscion of cheating. While being held in the police station, he tells the story of his life's journey and explains how he was able to answer the questions on the "hot seat".

Slumdog Millionaire is sensational. It is heartbreaking, yet exhilarating at the same time. It tells the story of brotherhood, unconditional love, fate and in midst of poverty, the struggles that come with. I forgo the picture of India potrayed in such a terrible state, I haven't been there to see it for myself and I couldn't say that I should believe the moviemakers.

All in all, I am glad we caught this movie on the big screen :)
