Black Panther Is The First Movie To Premiere In Saudi Arabia In 35 Years

Published

on

Black Panther keeps finding new ways to make history.

Black Panther has been announced to become the first movie shown in Saudi Arabia in 35 years, after the country lifted its longstanding ban on movie theaters. The film will debut with a gala premiere at the new AMC-branded movie theater in Riyadh on April 18.

Movie theaters were banned in Saudi Arabia in the early 1980s, which came in the aftermath of the country’s government adopting ultra-conservative religious standards in 1979. Last December, the government announced the ban would be lifted, as part of an initiative by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to transform the Saudi society and culture.

Black Panther has currently grossed over $1.2 billion dollars at the box office.
