Spartaks in Riga/Latvia

This postcard with the cinema Spartaks in Riga is a bit strange. Nothing looks like a cinema. But on the backyard is written: Latvijas PSR. Rīga, Kinoteātris 'Spartaks'.
The cinema was built next to the cinema Rīga / Splendid Palace and opened in 1969. Documentaries were mainly shown there without interruption.
Today the building is part of Splendid Palace, the second smaller hall.

  1. I think that postcard must be from when the cinema was very new, maybe not even opened. The added some signs later, see the other postcard on http://www.andreas-praefcke.de/carthalia/id/467
