Cinema in Word Order
"The word order", nab. Fontanka River, 15
Today, the Belarusian documentary video essay Dress will be shown at the Word Order independent bookstore. This is a feminist movie about the social clothing of Belarusians of different ages, education, marital status, class and place of residence. The film projector in Word Order recently broke, and the store asked regulars to help raise 70,000 for a new one. Most of the amount was paid by an anonymous buyer, who put several tens of thousands in cash. In the "Word Order" are held not only regular screenings, but also pre-premiere screenings and meetings with directors. Alexander Sokurov, Boris Khlebnikov, Vasily Sigarev, Avdotya Smirnova and others presented their films in the store.
Film screening "The Animals"
"Cinema House", Caravan Street, 12
Spanish Fantasy Director Marsal Fores. The story of schoolboy Paul and his talking bear, Durhuff. Paul plays the electric guitar, and Derhuf plays the drum kit. Paul's older brother is convinced that he is talking to himself, and Paul decides to get rid of his plush friend. However, the boy does not succeed in living as before. If the movies with the bears have already gotten bored, then you can watch one of the three films in mass distribution this week - the children's 3D extravaganza "Oz: The Great and Terrible", a beautiful horror movie about the "Mama" orphans who grew up in the forest, or the adventurous comedy with Cameron Diaz and Colin Firth.
If you think where to just go sit with friends, then in any order we recommend cranberry cake in a small new Smalldouble coffee shop, where there is also a tasting coffee. And for dinner, you can definitely try the classic vegetarian veggie burger in the cafe-bar Society of Clean Plates. By the way, you can cook it at home: the chef shared the recipe. And do not get on the bridges: Tuchkov and Palace again bred.
