For mass-media

In the MAMM cinema hall there will be shown two films about chess. In the comedy of Vsevolod Pudovkin «Chess fever» (1925) about a young man who missed his own wedding because of the love of chess, Jose Raul Capablanca starred in the role of himself. The film «Grand Master» (1972), scripted by Leonid Zorin — is a real sports drama in which in addition to many famous actors played Viktor Korchnoi (after his departure from the USSR the film was removed to shelf for ages).

Chess fever will cover each and every visitor of MAMM during the exhibition. In the lobby of the museum there will be a playground for playing park chess, and the young guests on weekends will be able to play original provided by Lego. A key event in the additional program of the exhibition will be an simultaneous game with children, held by the one of the best Russian grandmaster.
