Saudi Arabia’s 35-year Cinema Ban to end with “Black Panther”



Saudi Arabia's 35-year Cinema Ban to end with screening of "Black Panther"

“Black Panther” will open the first movie theatre in Saudi Arabia since the kingdom lifted a 35-year old ban on public cinemas.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the movie will be given a gala premiere on April 18 in Riyadh at the first AMC-branded cinema, a 620-seater theatre located in the King Abdullah Financial District.

Black Panther will show for five days followed by Avengers: Infinity War on April 26.

Saudi Arabia had announced in December 2017, that it had lifted the ban on public cinemas.

      Unfortunately #Wakanda is just imaginary. The real lesson is if Africa out of 54 nations had 5 wakandas the rest of the world will take us more seriously. But this can’t happen cause we are all part of the problem as clearly shown in the movie. Wakanda is a stingy nation.

      Wakanda is not stingy. They didn’t open their borders to just anybody to avoid any conflict, and exploitation. Although, at the end T challa mentioned wakanda is open to trade with outside world. Every successful nation made sure they excelled first within before outside. It’s only Africa that allowed anybody to come in and go out.
      Wakanda forever
