Theater history
The first record of the founding of a theater in this city was left by Žika S. Milovanović, a legend of the Petrovac theater scene. According to him, the Amateur Theater "Mlava" was founded in 1908 in the hotel "Sarić". This hotel was a place where numerous performances took place, especially in the period before the Second World War. Petrovac na Mlavi stood out from most cities at that time, giving an important place to art by founding a theater. The following individuals are responsible for that: Živko J. Đorić, Velimir P. Kuzmanović, Mika Dimitrijević, Mika Milovanović Kicoš, Živka Miljković, Dragoljub Živković Montinjoza and many others. Dragoljub Đurić has been managing this theater since 1927, and then its name was changed to the Amateur Theater "Mlava". The theater continued to operate during the war period, giving all citizens a little serenity in difficult times.
