An ancient Mayan theater found at an archaeological site in Mexico gives a clue to how the ancient A-list were entertained.

According to investigators from the National Institute of Anthropology and History the theater would have been used by high-ranking Mayans approximately 1,200 years ago.

The project director Luis Alberto Martos Lopez said that archeologists could tell ‘the theater was exclusive, since it was found in an acropolis, 42 meters above the other plazas’.
