Cinema Karibche, Mtskheta.

Cinema Karibche (Meaning 'the gate') is an abandoned movie theatre in the town of Mtskheta, Georgia. The building is located across from the main square and a stone throw away from one of the most visited Monasteries in the country, despite its location and colourful frontage it mostly goes unnoticed - except for me who made it the number one thing to see when visiting the city.
What is most interesting about the building and location is the archeological ruins that sit beneath, these are the original city gates and were discovered upon construction and preserved by placing the building over them. The original artwork on the facade is mostly still intact, but inside the theatre the walls and contents have mostly been vandalised or destroyed leaving an open question to when and if the building will ever re-open to the public.
