Cinema Palace Coming

A decision has been made to allocate land for the construction of a Palace of International Film, but its location has not yet been determined, Interfax reported Monday, citing the press service of City Hall's land department.

"The fundamental decision has been made, the land will be selected for the palace, but there is no concrete decision on its location," a spokesman said. He said work was underway on site selection.

It was announced earlier that Stage Entertainment has taken a long-term lease on the Pushkin movie theater, which has traditionally hosted the opening and closing of the Moscow International Film Festival, and plans to redesign it as a facility for live musical theater.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
