Salyut in Dnipro / Ukraine

 

Cinema Salyut Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk postcard 1982
Dnipro is since 2016 the name of the Ukrainian city Dnipropetrovsk - like it is written on this 1982 published postcard. I find it remarkable that only the Russian name of the city is printed on the postcard - not the Ukrainian name ...

Cinema Salyut was opened in the spring of 1976 and was presented as a gift to the city for its 200th anniversary (celebrated in May 1976). The cinema was designed for 800 seats.  At the beginning of the 2000s, the cinema was reconstructed and preserved. But the movie has not been shown in it for more than ten years. The building is now abandoned. 

The name refers to the Soviet Salyut programme - the first space station programme, undertaken by the Soviet Union. It involved a series of four crewed scientific research space stations and two crewed military reconnaissance space stations over a period of 15 years, from 1971 to 1986. 

To the left of the entrance you can see advertising for the film Осенний марафон / Autumn Marathon, a 1979 Soviet romantic comedy-drama directed by Georgiy Daneliya and winner of some international awards.
