National Geographic Russia, with support from the 35MM movie theater, held a private screening on May 18 of the film "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" — the continuation of the legendary maritime saga of our day. The unique movie was filmed entirely in 3D on exotic islands and rolling seas.

Also, guests could view a selection of top National Geographic Russia photos on display in the lobby.
