Description Change this

The Rossiya Cinema was considered the largest cinema in Armenia, accommodating 2500 visitors. Constructed between 1968 and 1975 by Armenian architects Spartak Khachikyan, Hrachik Poghosyan, and Artur Tarkhanyan. Cinema Rossiya, later known as Soviets Rossiya and Aryarat, was built to resemble the lower and higher peaks of the revered Armenian symbol of Mt. Ararat. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the cinema was abandoned, and then in the 1990s, commercial tents were set up here. Over time, Russia has become a shopping centre.
