3. The roof of the New Stage of the Alexandrinsky Theater

On the roof of the New Stage of the Alexandrinsky Theater there is a summer entertainment space, opening  the best views of  Fontanka and  surrounding roofs. But most importantly, there is a noiseless movie theater where viewers watch movies in headphones. This is the first silent   open-air cinema in St. Petersburg. Many people and many Petersburgers, as well as guests of the city, wish to attend these   film screenings not only once, as it is a unique opportunity to visit the roof of one of the most modern theaters of the city. The cinema on the roof is ready to accommodate only 60 spectators every time, so we recommend to book tickets in advance.
