In 1961, the Sputnik movie theater building was opened for visitors.
As a result of damage after the earthquake of 1988, the cinema was no longer functioning. For a while the building served as a furniture warehouse, and at the end of the 1990s it was destroyed completely.
The walls of an unfinished church are now located on the site of the Sputnik cinema building. Its construction began in 1993 but was never completed. The author of the project is the Honored Architect of the Republic of Armenia Grach G. Poghosyan. A new church is being built near the park, so construction work of the unfinished building is not planned.
