Text and Photot on August 23, 2006 by Kelv71

Mimino is the nostalgia film for Soviet baby boomers. Mimino (“falcon”) is a Georgian helicopter pilot who dreams of piloting large Aeroflot jets. He eventually leaves his beloved Georgia and succeeds in doing so, but yearns to return to Georgia.

This theme restaurant serves wonderful Georgian food, has 2 flat screen TVs with said movie playing and waitresses dressed as flight attendants. The pic is a mural on the wall of a sweeping Georgian landscape with Mimino piloting a helicopter.
