Unfavorite No one has favorited this theater yet

This small cinema located inside the huge Hotel Rossiya retained the 1970’s look it had when it first opened, and was popular for its off-beat programming, including little-seen European and Asian films. It and the hotel were demolished in 2006.

This cinema must be ‘dark’ as the Rossiya hotel (WORLDS LARGEST HOTEL 1967-1990)closed its doors on the 1st of January 2007.

It would be great to see some photos of it though.

The Zaryadia Cinema was located inside the Rossiya Hotel along with — among other things — a 2500-seat concert hall, go-cart track, post office, barber shop, police station (with jail) and a Nissan dealership. The hotel, which was designed by Dmitri Chechulin, was the largest hotel in the world when it opened in 1967, a title it held until it was eclipsed by the Excalibur in Las Vegas. The Rossiya closed January 1, 2006 and was demolished later that year. Current plans are for the former hotel site to become a public park.
