Cult cinema in original version at an amazing price. Great alternative entertainment.
Russian cinema has produced some great cult directors such as Tarkovsky and Eisenstein. If you're a fan of Russian films and cinema in general, the popular theatre/cinema Avrora offers a range of modern Russian films in original version. At the reasonable price of 250 roubles (around 6 euros), you can catch a film here at any time of the day, whether at 12 noon or 11 o'clock at night. The Avrora is the oldest cinema in Saint Petersburg and the closest metro is Nevsky Prospekt. It opened in 1913 under the name Picadilly and you'll probably find the locals still know it by its former name. Inside, the decor is still rather spectacular despite having been remodelled various times since it first opened.
