If not for the money, it is for the sake of cinema that some distributors put out old movies. Some particular films deserve much more attention than they get from streaming services or Blu-ray disks. In terms of quality appreciation, nothing compares to seeing a good old film in a decent cinema. The truth is, films are intended to be seen on a big screen with a good audio system, and not everyone can afford such expenses — but cinemas can. To give "new" people a chance of viewing an old film, some distributors, the ones passionate about cinema, present retrospectives — festivals where they show works from one director, period of time or genre. The latter case is not yet very widespread in Russia — cinemas don't usually schedule film collections of films portraying the issue of women's rights or anti-racist movements. Although topic-based selections aren't common in Russian cinemas yet, we already have a few major film festivals, where they select films based on countries of origin, regions, or particular directors.
