After World War I Kossuth Lajos street was the main playground for any social events. Today's Pushkin cinema used to be a casino. In 1926, it was reconstructed and special cinema equipment from England was installed. The world and his wife came to the opening night. Shining golden chandeliers and moulding drew admiration. Some things from that time still can be found here today. In 1930s, Budapest citizens saw their first sound film in this cinema. In 1952, Soviet representatives changed its name from Fórum to Puskin. Today, movies with subtitles are shown here including Hollywood mainstream and local art house.
