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.
On the site of the Sputnik movie theater there are now the walls of an unfinished church. A new church is being built not far from the park, so no construction work is planned at this location yet.
