The cities of the Far Eastern Federal District were included in the list of movie lovers, despite the pandemic. Residents of Khabarovsk and Ulan-Ude continue to show interest in cinemas even in the context of the second wave of coronavirus.

The Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation analyzed the interest of Russians in cultural institutions, books and video content related to culture and art in the context of the coronavirus pandemic. Due to the closure of cinemas today, their attendance rate has dropped tenfold compared to last year. With the resumption of their activities, attendance has won back more than half of the fall. However, with the onset of the second wave of coronavirus, the number of cinema visits fell again, but not in Khabarovsk, Ulan-Ude and a number of other cities.

The demand for books has suffered the least - the desire to buy them has not diminished either during the isolation or at the present time. The views of cultural content on TV and on the Internet are on the rise. Khabarovsk was also among the cities with the highest demand for books.

Theater attendance at the peak of coronavirus restrictions fell tenfold; in August and September, interest in theaters resumed, although it did not reach last year's level.

Interestingly, the decline in interest in museums compared to last year was less than in cinema and theaters. Perhaps people consider visiting museums less dangerous than going to the movies. True, the inhabitants of the Far East do not belong to them.
