Strike Force

Udarnik Cinema, Moscow
с. 1929
Designed by Boris Iofan, it is a part of huge apartment complex, with adjoining music hall, department store, 'kitchen-factory' (a prominent sign of the period), post office, etc.
After many decades of being one of the city's most popular and luxurious film theaters, now Udarnik (which means Striker, literally) is neglected and forgotten.
P.S. There is a powerhouse in the background
