Fontana Cinema

The cultural-social center and cinema Fountain was originally called Cinema Moscow. In the 1970s, it was  commonly screening blockbusters, of course only those with the regimes blessing. The cinema was a favorite place among young people, and the Fountain took advantage of this fact and expanded its projection into the outdoor space, bringing it closer to the ideal of American cinemas of the time. It is now one of the main and largest Cinematik venues.
