End of the World Cinema

Located somewhere on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt is this abandoned outdoor cinema.

It was built by Frenchman Diynn Eadel in the late 1990s, but suffered a power cut on what was supposed to be its premiere night. No one knows what went wrong, but some say the local authorities weren’t thrilled by the prospect of a movie theater in the middle of the desert and were the ones responsible for the generator’s malfunction.

The first movie it was supposed to screen was Jurassic Park, but the cinema never got to screen a single movie. The cinema has been closed off to tourist by the Egyptian government.

You can still see what remains of the cinema on Google Maps.
