Seldom I like anything among new constructions in Tehran but this new building, adjacent to one of Tehran’s internal highways, intrigued me. I was glad to learn that it is a cinema complex. Last night we went to see a movie, and mainly the building.
The following – not so great- pictures are taken with a cellphone.
Cinema Pardis is built by Tehran municipality and it is located between the Mellat Park and a highway. Here is the building seen from the highway.

Under the building, looking toward the highway …
… and toward the park.

The bookstore, the cafe.
