A free of charge cinema for homeless people just opened doors in Moscow, Russia.
One charity organization targeting homeless people on the streets of Moscow has done something incredible – they have opened up a cinema, which projects free of charge movies.
Friends On The Street – the charity organization in question – have put their minds and resources together in order to construct a movie theater near the crowded Yaroslavsky Station. The said cinema is hosted in a large tent, which fits in the projector, the screen and enough seats to host up to 100 homeless cinema goers. Not only do the homeless get to watch a movie completely free of charge, but they also receive a free meal before the screening of the movie. The cinema opened for the public earlier this July and it will host people two times every single month. The homeless get to vote which movie they want to see before they actually go to the cinema. The cinema usually projects light movies such as comedies like The Adventures of Shurik and Operation Y. According to the organizers of the events, the homeless usually want something laughable and old-fashioned. One of the visitors, who was identified only as Alexander, appreciates the efforts the charity has put into the project. He claimed that he has forgotten the last time he visited a cinema, even though he once worked at a film studio.
The charity organization has other plans for the homeless people living on the streets of Moscow and their projects don’t end with the cinema. They want to open up a beauty salon and even a football field so that the vagrants wandering around the Russian capital can have some nice entertainment and a place to clean up free of charge.
