There are a number of other cinemas in Kabul apart from the Ariana and the Pamir. However the cinemas in Kabul do very poor business because of the activities of the Taliban and the fact that people prefer to watch DVDs in their own homes or in cafes. Many of them have closed down. The wrecked cinema in the link referred to by Ken Roe is actually named the Cinema Theatre and is located in south west Kabul.
