‘Lenfilm’ has opened an exhibition called ‘How Movies are Made’ where they tell about making oldest Russian movies: from the scenario to the premiere. There you’ll see the camera, which shot the greatest Russian movies, old projectors, bulky sound recording equipment, scenery parts, costumes,
movie billboards, photos, and many other interesting things. For the first time the viewer will be able to see what’s going on off-camera. The gem of the exhibition is the dress which Elizabeth Taylor wore in ‘Blue Bird’, awards of ‘Lenfilm’, and other valuable artifacts.
We've got used to think that Russian production factories are, as a rule, half-destroyed buildings with leaking roofs and crooked staircases ending at the ceiling. However, the aircraft construction factory where they produce Sukhoi Superjets 100 in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, is a
sufficient refutation of the charge. About 12 thousand people work at the two departments of the factory. In the first one they make the fuselage, and in the other one they install electronics, engines, etc. Let's see how they turn a piece of aluminium into a plane.
Military men abandoned this bunker which used to be a communication center a year ago, but since its admission is free and it's was warm and light inside, it was quickly occupied by cats. Located at the ground level, it has a
rather low degree of protection. It has everything necessary to survive a gas or radioactive attack, such as hermetic front doors, air filters, and diesel engines. However, it wouldn't stand an explosion wave.
