January 10, 1928 is the day when the silent film «The End of St. Petersburg», directed by Vsevolod Pugovkin, was screened for the first time
The first cinema theatres to show the new film were «Velikan» in the Alexander Park, «Parisiana» and Vyborgsky recreation centre. The topic of the film is political, revealing the reasons and ways of the Bolsheviks coming to power in 1917. The plot covers the period from 1913 to 1917 approximately. The political figures of the time are not pictured in the film — the main theme is the struggle for the rights of the commoners and peace as opposed to the regime of capitalism and monarchy.
