The film is nicely done. It explains the history of the area. The theater is actually in the railroad tunnel.

Down at the caves is a railway line, dug into the mountain, which allowed trains to travel from Cairo (Egypt), through Israel to Beirut (Lebanon). Of course this train line is no longer operated. Walk into the disused tunnels, but not exit to where they...More
