‘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.
