I wonder what “Urgoo” might translate to in English. Is it a typical theater name such as “Palace” or “Strand” or a street name or the name of a theater chain?

Urgoo means palace, according to this site:

Formation of the Mongolian Capital has a trace from XVii century. in the year Yellow Rabbit by lunar calendar, exorbitant and influential noblemen proclaimed Zanabazar, son of the Tusheet Khan Gombodorj who was one of the 4 lofty noblemen as the Mon­golian Buddhism and built a special monastery complex for him. it was more palatial-like than monastery. Later, Urgoo (means palace) had been devel­oping as Zanabazar’s reputation and influence grew in the Mongolian social life.

Always good to brush up on my Mongolian every once in a while. I get rusty.
