I happened by the 35MM theater on Pokrovsky two weeks ago and asked what might be playing in English. Much to my delight, they had 2 films. I then checked their website at:

35 :: (http://www.kino35mm.ru)

The difficulty is that all listings are in Russian (can you imagine~~the nerve of some places).

I then noticed in The Moscow Times, Monday, February 2nd Edition under "Foreign Language Movies" that those same films are listed.

Problem:
I don't always get to the center on Mondays to get the MT. Many people have a hard time (me too) reading the Russian listings on the 35MM website.

Would anybody be interested in gathering the listings of all films being shown in English in Moscow and getting it posted? It might be nice to gather a group to go catch a movie now and then too. This would be a great service is someone were willing to take it on.

Next question: Would this be best posted in this, the Expat.ru House of Film, Books and TV Forum or the Local Events Forum, (or both)?

If you try translate.google.ru you'll get this: Translated version of http://www.kino35mm.ru/ (http://translate.google.com/translate?prev=hp&hl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.kino35mm.ru%2F&sl=ru&tl=en)

Click on the film you're after for more (translated) info. It's not flawless - you'd probably have an easier time finding 'Krasnye Vorota' metro instead of 'Red Gates' - and some of the phrasing might be a bit clunky, but it should tell you what you need to know.

The other cinema which often has subtitled films is the Kino pod Kupolom near Prospekt Mira and the Olympisky complex.

Don't forget the popcorn!

Saw Vicky Christina at 35 and wanna see Slumdog as well. But don't discount Russian dubbed fare. Saw Benjamin Button the other night at Oktobyr, a really historic, beautiful Soviet cinema. The crowd was great. You could really feel and see the emotions in the audience. And as any good filim, it could be followed without dialog. Of course I'll catch it in Englisky back in L.A., but it was a total different rag than 35mm...

Erhm.... actually Expat.ru features a complete schedule of all movies shown in their original language in Moscow...

Most of the stuff is indeed shown at 35MM. But all cinemas included in the following list frequently show movies in English:

I was lucky enough to be invited to the premiere of Slumdog Millionaire yesterday evening. Danny Boyle was there himself.

The movie is probably the best that Boyle did to date. The movie is not as defining as, let's say, Trainspotting or 28 Days Later, but it takes all the best elements of Boyle's skill into one movie. Mix that with a Bollywood sauce and stunning photography of Mumbai, including its slums, as well as credible actors.

Not meaning to go off topic, but I just wanted to share some enthusiasm! :)
