The theatre was built under the Pibidemu Polonnaruwa development project, at a cost of Rs. 25.5 m.
However, it is currently falling into ruin with weeds sprouting everywhere and the premises becoming a place where cattle lie.
Charge that allowing this place to fall into ruin is a waste of public funds, residents question the situation of the building inside.
They urge authorities to look into the matter and prevent further damage.
