Deputy Director of Yerevan’s Moscow Cinema Norayr Azatyan has died. He was 65 years old.

The entire staff of the movie theater expresses its deep condolences to Azatyan’s family, friends and relatives on the occasion of his untimely death.

Azatyan had been deputy director of Moscow Cinema since 1991.

During the difficult years in Armenia, it was through the combined efforts of the movie theater’s late director Martun Adoyan and Norayr Azatyan that Yerevan’s Moscow Cinema and Gyumri’s October Cinema were reopened, after which several local and international film festivals were held.

Adoyan and Azatyan made invaluable contributions to the development and dissemination of the Armenian film industry.

The Requiem Service will be held on May 6 at 5:30 at St. Sargis Church in Yerevan.
