Yubileiny in Qaraghandy / Kazakhstan


In 1967, the city Qaraghandy / Karaganda received a new wide-format cinema with 840 seats. The opening was in the same year with the 50th anniversary of the Great October Socialist Revolution and hence the name Yubileiny - Anniversary.

The first premiere was the film Свадьба в Малиновке / Wedding in Malinovka - the first Soviet color, wide-screen film, directed by Andrei Tutyshkin in 1967. The musical comedy is about a Ukrainian village during the time of the Russian Civil War. With power alternating almost daily between Soviet and Ukrainian nationalist forces, the villagers of Malinovka are never sure who is in charge, so they modify their behaviour and dress accordingly.

In July 2013, in the village of Malinovka (Kharkov region) a monument to the hero of the film, Adjutant Popandopulo, was erected. I love film monuments (and postcards with this item).

In 1997, the Munira company bought the Yubileiny cinema. During the period of the crisis of film distribution, which coincided with the general economic crisis, when the city’s cinemas were sold and converted into nightclubs and casinos, the Yubileiny cinema not only did not stop working, but was one of the first in Kazakhstan to engage in the revival of cinema screening. 

From 2012 to 2015 the cinema was completely rebuilt. A modern cinema complex with 7 screens was built around the old cinema. The Yubileiny cinema became one of the best cinemas in the country, meeting high international standards.

The postcard was printed in 1972. On the left you can see  poster for the 1965 US-American film  Звуки музыки / The Sound of Music  and for the 1970 Lithuanian Мужское лето / Vyrų vasara (Men's Summer).

Andreas Praefcke writes on his Carthalia-Website about this cinema: "This standard design by M. P. Bubnov, V. V. Lazarev, I. V. Semeikin, E. B. Ter-Stepanov and V. G.
