Krasnoyarsk Launches Construction Of A Multiplex Theatre

Krasnoyarsk, Eastern Siberia has launched a project of Russia's first multiplex theatre. The new building is erected on the basis of one of the oldest theatres in Siberia, the Krasnoyarsk Pushkin Drama Theatre. According to theatre director Igor Beilin, Governor of the Krasnoyarsk region Alexander Lebed intends to cover two thirds of construction expenses from the territorial budget. Russian Culture Minister Mikhail Shvydkoi, too, has decided to lend financial support to what he called "a unique theatre complex." The projected complex has four halls, one large, one medium and two small ones, designed to seat 600, 250 and 2x120 spectators, accordingly. Beilin promises that each of these halls will be "as cosy as our [Pushkin] theatre." Each hall comes complete with its own rehearsal room. One of the unique features of the multiplex theatre is a single technological corridor, which will help workers mount decorations on each of the four stages. New features will be added to the facade of the building, which will nevertheless retain the stylistic features of the early 20th century. The theatre's troupe, however, shall not be enlarged, with the same number of actors /43-45/ engaged in the multiplex system, which means each actor will have more work to do, says Beilin.
