The KINO CITY Group of Companies begins modernizing film presentation infrastructures in the Astrakhan Region within the framework of the project – KINOCLUB: Culture, Education, and Communication.


On May 16, 2011, our company, as the main operator of the project - KINOCLUB: Culture, Education, and Communication – initiated by Yedynaya Rossiya, and Aleksandr Zhilkin, Governor of the Astrakhan Region, signed an agreement on Kino City’s participation in modernizing regional film presentation infrastructures.

The most important object of this modernization project will be the Oktiabr (October) cinema theater in the very center of Astrakhan. The oldest cinema theater in the city will be converted into a multiplex center. In general, construction work to modernize this future multiplex will include the following: extensive repairs of the theater seating more than 1,000 spectators, restoration of the audience hall of the “Modern” cinema theater, built in 1909, on whose ground the Oktiabr was constructed in the seventies of the last century, as well as the reconstruction of a unique winter garden, along with the participation of leading experts from Moscow and Saint Petersburg. In addition to several multimedia cinema theaters, there will also be an Internet Club and different leisure and recreation associations for young people.

Top priority status was accorded after the agreement between Kino City and the Astrakhan Region had been signed, concerning projects for modernizing regional film presentation infrastructures, and particularly for reconstructing the Oktiabr cinema theater. This means that the project will be launched before the end of this year.
