Along its roofline façade is an elaborate marble mosaic depicting scene from the Revolution. Designed by architects, Posohin, Popov & Mnfayants as a purpose-built twin screen cinema, with the the main auditorium having 2,450 seats in orchestra and balcony levels and 442 seats in the small basement cinema. The main auditorium was equipped with Stereo 70 projection (70mm 3D).
