During the summer season in Moscow, the insitute organizes evening events from lectures to farmer's markets. One of the coolest places to watch a movie on a Friday night is here, under the open sky. With a blanket and a cup of tea or a drink from the institute's in-house bar.

IFC Center, New York
323 Avenue of the Americas, 10014
My favorite film center in New York always plays the weirdest and most thought provoking films. You will have never heard of them before and if you try to find them anywhere else, chances are you won't. If you are looking for something to do on a rainy Sunday afternoon, this will be your best bet.
Film Forum, New York
209 W Houston St, 10014
This downtown film center has been open since 1970 and takes you back to old New York with every visit. Amazing selection of old films and new indies.
