The first modern cinema theater opened in Syunik province
“S'Unique” movie theatre opened in the provincial capital of Syunik Kapan on March 21.
The cinema is the only one of a kind in the regions of Armenia. It meets international standards with its structure and furnishing and is equipped with the latest cinema equipment from Germany.
The cinema hall has 84 seats and the prices of tickets are significantly lower than those in Yerevan movie theatres.
The first guests of the cinema were the Syunik Governor Vahe Hakobyan, the management of “Zangezur Copper Molybdenum Combine”, representatives of regional and community authorities, Honorary Citizens of Kapan community and cultural figures.
The first movie shown on the screen of “S'Unique” movie theatre was the film “The Flight Starts from the Earth”, 1980, shot at the Kapan airport. The symbolic film was chosen since Kapan airport will be reopened within several months.
“We have been thinking for a long time what can be done to organize youth entertainment in the region and make everyday life interesting. I guess cinema was the best solution. I am glad to note that the recently opened cinema is equipped with all modern technical means and is quite comfortable. I hope that soon it will become the favorite place of the young people,” Governor of Syunik province Vahe Hakobyan told reporters, adding that regular free screenings will be organized for vulnerable groups at the cinema.
Reconstruction of the cinema began in November 2017. The cinema with a total cost of $400,000 was built on the initiative of the Governor Vahe Hakobyan with the support of the Syunik Region Development and Investment Foundation.
