Big Screen

Kodak’s Western-style movie theater, Kino Mir, which opened last year in Moscow, is bringing in big profits as young Muscovites flock to the movies, drawn in by the theater’s state-of-the-art sound and projection systems and its central location (near Pushkin Square). This year, ticket sales could top $2 mn, putting Kino Mir among the top three grossing single-screen theaters in the world. Meanwhile, most Russian movie theaters are struggling to keep afloat and have to rent out space to other businesses in order to survive.
