Located in central Moscow, close to the Moskva River to the south-west of the Kremlin. The Gorizont Cinema opened in September 1966. It was designed by noted architect Missornikov, who also designed the residential block that contains the cinema. The original booking policy of the cinema was to to screen a broader range of films than normal in that Soviet era.

It has a low, wide frontage (Gorizon means wide horizon), which is faced in aluminium. The spacious foyer has a glazed frontage. Since the mid-1990’s parts of the foyer have been leased out as a fireplace showroom and a bureau de change. There are also tables and chairs in a buffet area and many potted plants.

Inside the auditorium the floor is steeply raked and the walls are finished in a projecting grey pyramid moulding. The cinema was equipped to screen 70mm films.

Today, the programming consists of low budget Russian films, American films dubbed into Russian and occasional European films.
