If you're looking for a mainstream cinema, you've come to the wrong place. Dom Kino only screens cult classics.
This is another of the oldest theatre/cinemas in the city and is known for screening the very best world cinema. Steering clear of Hollywood productions, Dom Kino showcases critically acclaimed films from festivals such as Cannes, Sundance or Venice. It sometimes shows entire back catalogues of famous directors, as well as German, Chinese and French cinema. Ticket prices are very accessible, ranging from 100 to 200 roubles (2-5 euros). The closest metro is Gostiny Dvor, near to Arts Square. It is the only cinema that screens films in English and it attracts an eclectic crowd of both young and old, and foreign and local film lovers. Take care to not end up in the wrong place as the Rodina cinema is just next door (the entrance is behind the monument).
