Reports: ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ second film to be screened in Saudi cinemas
The Black Panther movie made its debut in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday with a spectacular opening of the kingdom’s very first movie theater. It is now announced that a second film will be screened and it is another Marvel movie: Avengers: Infinity War.
The superhero movie will be released on April 26 in the kingdom, according to the producers of the film. Black Panther is set to be screened for five days in Riyadh.
The science fiction film is two-hours and 23-minutes long starring Karen Gillan, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Pratt and Anthony Russo.
The 620-seater theatre where the film will be screened is a converted symphony hall in the King Abdullah Financial District, and is the first of hundreds of cinemas planned to open in the next decade.
In December 2017, Saudi Arabia announced that they will lift the three-decade-old ban on commercial cinemas as a part of the social reforms. As part of the deal, the world's biggest cinema chain, AMC, announced plans to open up to 40 cinemas in more than 15 cities in the kingdom.
