Rodina in Mogilev/Belarus

I got this postcard via postcrossing from Belarus.
It shows the cinema Rodina in Mogilev. The name "Rodina" means "home, homeland".
The cinema was opened 75 years ago, on 6 November 1939 (the 7 November is the anniversary of the October Revolution). The first shown movie was "Svetly put" by Grigori Aleksandrov. 
Today the cinema has one screen, 200 seats and shows movies in 3D.

In front of the cinema there is the "Ploschad Zvezd / Stars' Square" with a figure of the zodiac and a star gazer. This a work by the Belarusian sculptor Vladimir Zhban.
