Located inside one of seven hulking Soviet Gothic style skyscrapers which Stalin erected during the 1940’s across Moscow (‘The Seven Sisters’). The 320-seat Illuzion Cinema was opened on March 18, 1966. This little cinema screens classic films, especially Soviet-era movies from the 1920’s-1940’s and is one of the only venues in the city to see these kind of films. It is operated by the National Film Fund of Russia.
