Cinema «Prometheus» in the city of Pripyat

In Soviet times, when it was impossible to watch film on internet, going to the cinema was one of the most common entertainment. A cinema was perfect for many types of pastime: an evening with coworkers or friends, a romantic date, family activities and even skipping class.

«Prometheus» was built in the 70s almost in the center of the city of Pripyat. The cinema was designed for 1220 seats. The building was decorated with the mosaic named «Energy» by Ivan Litovchenko (1975). We can still admire this work of art, because it is well preserved. Once there was a statue of Prometheus near the cinema. People of Pripyat called it «a man with a towel». Well, there is a similarity. Now this statue is located in the territory of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Figure was transported there to protect it from looters.

 

Why such attention to Prometheus? He became the symbol of the city of Pripyat. Prometheus brought people fire, that is, light and warm, and Pripyat was built as a satellite city of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, a source of those benefits.

 

Cinema «Prometheus» is one of our main locations: we show it during group one-day and two-day, as well as individual tours to the Chernobyl exclusion zone. Come and see it with us!
