Geographical location of Mellat Cinema
The old cinema is located in the greenest square in Qazvin, Sabzeh Meydan, Southside of Ferdowsi Street, Qazvin Province, Iran.
History and culture of Mellat Cinema
Qazvin city can be named amongst the first cities of Iran that had several movie theaters and went on screen for the first time in 1928. Unfortunately, all of those old cinemas were somehow destroyed and Mellat Cinema was the only one that survived the many events before and after Iran’s revolution, but now it is deserted and unusable; the only remaining thing of it is the structure and the significant memories of people’s happy moments inside it. So it is the oldest cinema in the Qazvin city which was up and running almost till 2003 and then suddenly abandoned for good.
Tips and ideas
The aged cinema can be a good spot for photography and since there are many other great known historical sites near such as Sabzeh Meydan, Chehel Sotun Palace, Qazvin Calligraphy Museum, Sa’d al Saltaneh Caravanserai, and Grand Bazaar of Qazvin, it is a time well-spent visit. Maybe one day Mellat Cinema gets restored and goes on the screen once again!
