Leipzig in Kiev/Ukraine

Я училась в школе: Лейпциг город-побратим Киева. Но я не узнала, что в Киеве есть кинотеатр Лейпциг. И в Киеве есть (былы) кинотеатры с названиями других городов-партнеров: Братислава, Ереван, Киото, Тампере, Флоренция. Я не знаю ни одного другого города, где бывали кинотеатры с названиями городов-побратимов. В Лейпциге был ресторан Город Киев. Я никогда не былa там, ни в Киеве, ни на Украине ...

In Kiev there is a tradition for naming cinemas after twin cities. So there are cinemas Bratislava, Yerevan, Kyoto, Tampere, Florence - and Leipzig. I like the special typographic representation of these cinema names. Cinema Leipzig was opened on October 30, 1974 and still works. 

The postcard was published in 1991. It is a special postcard because the photo was taken around New Year's Day 1990 - look at the decorated tree and the wishes above the entrance.


Milenium in Słupsk/Poland

Cinema Milenium in Słupsk - the name points to the future of cinematography. Opened in 1963, it was one of the first in Poland to have a cinerama. It belonged to the ten most important cinemas in Poland .
The cinema inaugurated its activity on April 4, 1963 with a screening of the film Zerwany most (Poland 1962, directed by Jerzy Passendorfer).
Initially, the Milenium cinema had 724 seats in the auditorium, but their number decreased slightly after subsequent renovations and as a result of enlarging the stage. At the beginning of the 1970s, the number of seats was reduced to 640, in 1979 the reclining seats were replaced with new ones, and in 1999 another renovation and modernization of the stage forced the number of seats to be reduced to 600. 
On December 16, 2000 the cinema showed its last film: Zerwany most.
Now there is a supermarket in this building.
You can read the advertised movie above the entrance: Lekarstwo na miłość (Poland 1966, directed by Jan Batory).
I found many photos of this cinema here.


Wenus in Zielona Góra/Poland

Yuri Gagarin, the first person in space, visited Zielona Góra in July 1961. In the same year, cinema Wenus in Zielona Góra was opened with 440 seats. It was for 47 years the most visited cinema in the city. Today the building is used for the Wenus Planetarium.
