The Rossiya Theatre (Russian: Театр «Россия»), formerly known as the Pushkinsky Cinema (Russian: Кинотеатр «Пушкинский») is monument of architecture and currently the largest theatre in Moscow operated by Stage Entertainment. It is located in Pushkinskaya Square.
Since the early 1960s, it was the largest cinema hall in Europe and the main cinema hall of the USSR. The Rossiya Cinema was built in 1961 and became the largest of its kind in Europe. The cinema has always hosted major events, such as the Moscow International Film Festival.
In 1997, The Rossiya was leased (and then eventually sold) to the large film distributor Karo Film, which renovated the theatre and changed its name to Pushkinsky. The Pushkinsky was leased in 2012 to Stage Entertainment Russia for a period of five years.
