    "It's all about the black stripes": revival of the Cyclorama

    In the fall of 2018, VDNH will open the renovated Cyclorama cinema — a monument to innovators of Soviet film production and one of the Exhibition's iconic sites. Now the building, which has not been expansively renovated in 59 years, is under renovation: the engineering systems do not meet modern requirements, and the historical equipment needs restoration. After the renovation, the Cyclorama, having preserved its architectural appearance and functions, will turn into a full-cupola cinema with a 360-degree complete screen and a mobile platform, where visitors can enjoy movies in 4D format. The old equipment will not only become a part of the exposition — there will be historical screenings, for which new copies of Soviet circular movies will be printed. Alexander Zenin, a VDNH consultant in cinematographic engineering, the engineer and the head of the Museum of Cinema, talked about the past, the present and the future of the Cyclorama.

    Historic Sculpture "Rabbits" to Return to "Rabbit Breeding" Pavilion

    The historic sculpture composition “Rabbits” that crowned the roof of the pavilion No. 44 “Rabbit Breeding” in the 1950s, will finally be returned to its home. At the end of February, two mirror-like groups of statues will be erected facing each other on the balustrade of the building. They were reconstructed using VDNH archive photos. The original cement figures were supposedly dismantled and lost in the 1960s, when the theme of the pavilion was changed. Now, half a century later, the "Rabbits" sculptures are finally returning to the spot reserved for them in the initial design.
