Minsk theatres

Or anyway, “theatres” broadly defined.

We’ve already seen the Moskva (Москва) cinema on Pobediteley avenue, but here’s the Pobeda (Победа) cinema on Internatsionalnaya street in Minsk:

Here’s the Belarusian National Opera & Ballet Theatre:

It’s clear from this page about the history of the building that it has recently been restored.

But what more dramatic way to announce a theatre than with a tank in front? (Other sites say that the tank is a T-35/85, a model written up here.) Below, the Drama Theatre of the Belarusian Army, on Krasnoarmeiskaya street.
