Vladimir Putin suggests doubling the number of cinema theaters in the country


Vladimir Putin has reduced State support of the cinema in 2011, but suggested doubling the number of cinema theaters in Russia.
Vladimir Putin has promised that the State will not introduce any film distribution quotas to support the domestic film industry. Instead, the Prime Minister has suggested doubling the number of cinema theaters in Russia. There are 2.2 thousand of them in Russia today. “However, this is three times less than in developed countries,” remarked the Prime Minister. Putin did not specify which countries he was referring to. Vladimir Putin’s wish will become a reality when the development of Kino City begins, a project designed by Fedor Bondarchuk and Eduard Pichugin.
