Three floors will be retail galleries, where H&M and Inditex will be presented as well. The large entertainment zone will be over 30,000 square meters with virtual and expanded reality… The important element is the first laser IMAX cinema – the third in Europe, which will be opened jointly with Planeta Kino,” Boiko said at a press conference on Wednesday.
