The multimillion-dollar cinema has been showing only one film, “Turkmenistan the Heavenly Land,” since it opened in central Ashgabat about six months ago.
“Perhaps people got tired of the film,” said a cinema employee who didn’t want to give his name. “Most of our customers are not interested in the film, they just come to see the movie house itself.”
He said the theater needed at least five customers to show the movie, but most of the time the number of visitors didn’t reach five and the showing was canceled.
Looks like they don’t like the gimmick of 3D any more in former Soviet states than they do in the US.
