An abandoned movie theatre deep in Egypt's Sinai desert has recently been discovered by an Estonian photographer

According to Kaupo Kikkas, the old abandoned outdoor cinema in Egypt was built by a wealthy Frenchman, but no film was ever shown there as on its opening night, the generator powering its grand debut cut out.

While tours do visit near the area of the deserted space, it seems that the cinema is going to be left there unused — a testament to the country's famed influence on the film industry in the Middle East.
