Many abandoned homes are left to the elements, allowing nature to handle the demolition. But when artist Matthew Mazzotta came across an abandoned house in York, Alabama, he and his team decided to turn it into a foldable public theater called "Open House."
According to Inhabitat, with the materials and land from the old home, Mazzotta created a place that looks like a normal house, but can be unfolded to reveal a 100-seat space where the community can watch plays, movies and live musical performances.
It takes about an hour and a half to transform but as you can see if the video above, it's totally worth.
Watch the video to see this cool project, and be sure to head over to Inhabitat for more information. H/T Gizmodo.

If this were your house, you could practically charge admission.
An abandoned home that wasn't as lucky.
