The world ended here.

I saw this today and I just had to share it.  I copied this post from: http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2014/03/end-of-the-world-cinema/  It is pretty strange to think this has just been sitting there in the desert all these years!  Makes ya wonder what will be left sitting like this, when man finally destroys the planet.  At any rate, enjoy, please leave a comment and rate the post 🙂

End of the World Cinema: An Abandoned Outdoor Movie Theater in the Desert of Sinai movies Egypt

Somewhere on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt, nestled at the foot of a desert mountain range, sits a peculiar sight that is almost completely out of place: hundreds of seats for an outdoor movie theater. Estonian photographer Kaupo Kikkas recently visited the desolate location and brought back these amazing shots of a decaying dream. He shares via his blog that the theater was built not too long ago by a man from France with considerable means. Tons of old seats and a generator were hauled in from Cairo, not to mention 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. A single movie was never screened. So now it sits in the middle of a desert, a random movie theater that was never used. You can still see it on Google Maps.

  1. I would agree that the “theatre” should not have been built in the first place, however, I hope who ever sabotaged the generator was really pleased with themselves watching this stuff just sit there and to rot. Now it appears like the beginnings of a garbage landfill.

  2. It’s insane. Some people think they can do whatever they please because they have the money regardless how ridiculous their project is. Cannot believe it ! This world is really quite sick!

    • I know, it is odd how so many people squander what they have! It is not just the rich, it is everyone I feel. They get a little money and just go blow it, and if they have a lot of money then they blow a lot of money! It is crazy, and it is sick! We hope to be full time missionaries one day and it seems shocking the amount of money that is spent on things and stuff instead of people!

Let me know what you think?
