Park Mellat Cinema Complex - Iran

In the latest issue of Brownbook magazine I read an article about Park Mellat Cinema Complex in Iran. The architecture is very impressive



I wish if they added the English language to Mellat Cinema official website, the building is designed by architect Reza Daneshmir, who made a piece of art to display the art of cinema in it. Having a locally made art with in an art piece is very impressive, I admired that Mellat Cinema Complex is built creatively for the display of one of my favorite visual arts in the present time :)

My hat goes off to Persian designers, they do have a lot of talented architects and engineers to make buildings like that.

Thanks for posting this. I lived in Tehran for 9 years and I had no idea Mellat Park had a cinema :(

The website is mostly about the films being screened. There's only a short section in the About section the cinema itself (area, capacity, structure, etc) and these 8 pics of the inside: http://www.cinemamellat.com/Fa/ImgArchive.aspx?type=oth

hey guys, im iranian. i was lookin for mellat complex website and i saw this link.

mellat complex was built about 2 years ago. the architecture is impressive but the outdoor lighting of cinema building is awful!

if you're in iran and know farsi then go and have a look at some of persian cults like mehrjui's "hamoun" and hatami's "mother" which will be on the screens in ramazan!

good luck!
