Former "Rossia" cinema building in Yerevan included in the list of Soviet modernism pearls
The Russian edition of RBC has compiled a list of the 10 most impressive buildings of Soviet modernism that are “worth seeing”.
The cinema “Rossia” built in the Soviet era, located in the center of Yerevan, was also included in the list.
“In the 1980s, the cinema was the largest in Armenia. In addition, exhibition halls, dance floors and cafes worked there. The curved shape of the two parts of the building served as a natural sound amplification. At the junction of the two buildings of the cinema, the architects designed a transparent ceiling through which viewers could watch the starry sky after evening sessions, ”the publication says.
It is noted that after the collapse of the USSR, the cinema "Rossia" fell into disrepair: in the 90s, trading shops worked there, and then they wanted to demolish it. By the beginning of the 2010s, part of the building was reconstructed and turned into a shopping center.
