The Mirage Cinema (or 'Mirazh' as it's often transliterated from the Russian) is a welcome sight for anyone struggling through the proverbial St. Petersburg desert, looking for an English-language screening of the latest release. Hollywood blockbusters and slightly more leftfield choices can be viewed in their two auditoriums, which satisfy all the essential criteria - ie. decent-sized screens and seats that don't leave your bottom numb. Needless to say, this being a Russian cinema, there's a restaurant, internet cafe, sushi bar and pool room onsite.
Editor & St Petersburg Local
I suffer from a slight paralysis after a stroke in my childhood and need a crutch to walk.
At the theatre I was told I wasn’t welcome because “I could scare other visitors”!
Never been so humiliated in my life and obviously I shall never come back.
What is this - a joke?
Have just been there this afternoon to cach a movie with nothing else to do, but there were NO ENGLISH language movies!!! We were so dissapointed...
Add to this that absolutely nobody spoke a word of English there. Looked like a nice place though.
Great place to spend a whole evening - see a film, have a drink, play some pool, all in one building - brilliant!
