The Cinema Happened

p. 1
Ilindenka Petruševa

With the summer spot-scene “Park”, the older citizens of Skopje had the opportunity to recall of their “old days”, and of their youth, when, with the great curiosity, and with their eyes wide open were swallowing the film repertoire offered by this summer cinema, and those who didn’t know this romantic film area because of their age, now did discover a new summer spot to attend.

    For a long time I was wondering what is the „Parks and Greenery” to Saško Nasev for? A good drama writer, he even had an excellent scenario for a film (I mean, of course, about the film SUICIDE GUIDE). And even then I knew – that even the grass and the flower – are CULTURE. And here: in that quest for the new (and the real) relation between the man and nature, Saško Nasev and Aco Dukovski – Dukac (the Manager of CITY CINEMAS – Skopje) found themselves on the same „wave-length”. That’s how – A CINEMA happened to us!
    So, on 6th of July 2000 (after 20 years) the cinema-projectors started again – in the summer cinema “Park”. With “Erin Brokovich” (with the gorgeous Julia Roberts), at 21:00h. Before that, we took a walk by the Fountain, and through the first section of the City Park. In front of the Summer Scene-spot: congratulations and joy… Panta Mizhimakov had a remark that there is no boiled corn: “What is a summer cinema without a boiled corn?” Aco Dukovski – Dukac promised that the corn would be provided in future, like that’s a part of the CITY CINEMAS obligation…? My friend Mimi showed us the spot where she was seating the night before she gave her first birth. Orce is recalling where exactly was the place of the old ticket booth. I was telling the story how I tried, many years (and decades) ago, to climb a tree near by to see the Cubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey”. In other words – I didn’t manage to buy myself a ticket, nor I succeeded to climb that tree – either. But, on the other hand, I did mange to see (in TOD-AO system) the “Tchaikowski” and „Lika, the great love of Chekhov”. It was a long time ago, sometime in the 70’s. But the opening day of the Summer Scene in the City Park was even before that.
    So we are going back to the 1950. Namely, on 28th
