The cinema at the end of the world
Check this abandoned outdoor movie theatre in the Sinai desert, nestled at the foot of a desert mountain range. It’s a peculiar sight, out of place and somewhat out of time: hundreds of seats for an outdoor movie theatre.
Apparently the theatre was built in the recent past by a man from France with considerable means. Tonnes of old seats and a generator were hauled in from Cairo, along with a giant screen that looked like the sail of a ship.
Everything was set for opening night, with one small problem. Kikkas says the locals weren’t particularly keen on the whole idea and decided to discreetly sabotage the generator, meaning that not a single movie was ever screened.
So here it sits, a random movie theatre in the middle of a desert that was never used.
And you can see it on Google Maps.
