History of the Building

The Druzhba Cinema opened in 1952. It was designed by architect Stanislav Sokolov in the Stalinist Empire style and became part of the Park of Culture complex.

The cinema was named after a sculptural group depicted on the facade of the building. It has been preserved for visitors to admire. Initially, the sculpture was supposed to represent three peasant women holding sheaves of wheat, but the factory did not have time to complete the order. Therefore, the figures of Soviet, African and Chinese Komsomol members were found in some warehouses at the last minute. They symbolize friendships between different nations.

However, due to the poor condition of the building, the cinema stopped operating in the 1980s. In the 1990s it was almost destroyed due to constant flooding.

Reconstruction began in 2016 and the Druzhba Cinema has slowly come to life.
