Hello beautiful autumn October!

THE CRANES ARE FLYING is not only a masterpiece of Soviet cinema but also has a unique, distinctive cinema language. It was voted best movie of the week by our audience.

An extraordinary movie that turns every screening at Okia Cinema an emotion as pure as Veronika’s tears!

Watch the film trailer:

OFFICE ROMANCE is a comedy-drama movie about the Russian society in the 70s full of promising changes.

A gorgeous, vibrant, lively, charming Moscow basked in the golden light of autumn and the glistening strokes of winter… Those who love and feel attached with Moscow could not help but feel emotional all the while laughing to delicate comedy moments in this movie! Those who have never been to Russia and only adore it through the silver screen, this is the chance to have a “flight ticket” with much love.

MOSCOW DOES NOT BELIEVE IN TEARS… just the name could tell you all about the popularity of this movie. This is the one that would make many generations of Vietnamese feel nostalgic. But it’s not only because it takes us back in time… but because, most importantly, its language is such endearing and sophisticated. Enticing and heart-rending!

This is the movie that US President Ronald Reagan watched 8 times over to understand what the Russians think, what creates the Russian spirit… before the historical meeting with Mikhail Gorbachov.

Watch the film trailer:

This whole film week, is dedicated to Moscow…
A Moscow in pain amidst war but the cranes are still flying back…
A Moscow that is lively and hilarious, as if tomorrow is as bright as it can get…
And a Moscow that does not believe in tears…

These three gorgeous movies portraying different aspects of Moscow are dedicated to you, the cinema enthusiasts!
