Abandoned Cinema Jul 09, 2016
An unmissable sight in Gagra is the old cinema, a grand building standing high above the colonnaded entrance to Gagra's Seaside Park. At first glance, it looks in good nick, but as you climb the steps, you notice that the windows are all broken, and the door has been pushed open. Damaged in the war of 1992, it has been abandoned since then.

Nobody is there to stop you going in, and a few curious tourists were poking around with cameras. I asked one what the building was, and he looked at me as if I was stupid, saying "kinoteatr", but it wasn't obvious to me straight away what this building was. It doesn't look like a cinema, more like some sort of government ministry. Even inside, it is hard to work out that this was a cinema, as it contains a couple of smallish rooms with no obvious seating or place for a screen. But what is left is quite beautiful, if you're a fan of abandoned buildings.
