Until 2004, our cinema was called "Pleven" and it was located in one of the most beautiful places in our city. Cinema "Pleven" began working in 1978 and immediately became one of the best cinemas in the city, along with "Russia", "Rostov" and "Jubilee." With its appearance, the cultural level of the young district has risen significantly - after all, it was here that the residents of the Soviet district spent their free time and it was here that they could get acquainted with the masterpieces of world cinema. After all, "Pleven" even at that time started simultaneously with Moscow, and our viewers could watch the same films as Muscovites, not a couple of years later, but at the same time. “Pleven” is one of the first cinemas to install slot machines in the lobby. Unfortunately, the difficult times experienced by the cinema in our country also touched Pleven. At first he began to empty, and then completely fell into disrepair. For years, people had to travel to the city center to watch the movie in a comfortable environment.
