The 1930s were a turning point for Soviet cinema - sound came to the cinema. This decade was also a turning point for Moscow. In 1935 the Stalin general plan for the reconstruction of Moscow was adopted for implementation. From a cozy, slightly provincial city, Moscow began to turn into the exponential capital of the world's first socialist state with wide avenues, tall buildings, and spacious squares. We will try to see all these reincarnations in the film shots from the films “Start to life”, “Circus”, “Girl with character”, “First glove”, “Volga-Volga”, “Heart of four”, etc.
Be sure to look at the dynamics of the "living model" of the capital from the movie "New Moscow". Let us estimate how the filmmakers of the 1930s imagined the future of our city.
Our virtual tour of Moscow of the past will be supplemented with posters, old photographs, notes from magazines and newspapers of the time.
