A photo of an abandoned theatre was recently shared on social media and many people couldn't stop talking about it.
The photo was shared on Twitter by @desertedpix which simply captioned it:
The abandoned theatre must have accommodated lovers of play from around the world and probably held one of the best theatrical performances of all time.
With a ripped ceiling and dilapidated walls, the theatre must have been abandoned for a very long time.
Playwright like Wole Soyinka will definitely not be happy with the state of this theatre.
Tweeps soon flooded the comment section of the post to share their thoughts on it.
"I have seen this in Calgary Alberta Canada a theater about 140 years old in a 150 year old city originally a 2 level live theater in the 1940s converted to a movie theater and then into a 4plex cheap seats....it was called "the town" when it was being restored wow all the rooms."
"It is reminiscent to what the banking system will look like."
"Thought it was an outdoor theater .still looks beautiful to me."
"This almost reminds me of Kino der Toten from Black Ops Zombies."
In other news, a photo of the oldest mosque in Lagos, Shitta-Bey Mosque, was recently shared on social media by the official Twitter page of the state government.
Sharing the photo on Twitter, @followlasg noted that the mosque, which was built in 1892, is one of the oldest mosques in Nigeria.
In 2013, the mosque was designated as a national monument by the Nigerian Commission for Museums and Monuments.
The mosque, which was founded by Sierra Leonean-born Nigerian, Mohammed Shitta, is considered one of Nigeria's most important historical legacies.
