The Saudi General Authority for Audiovisual Media announced on Thursday, December 21, the launch of its first official Twitter account for Saudi cinema.
The launch of the account comes 10 days after the Ministry of Culture and Information announced that commercial cinemas will be allowed to operate in the Kingdom from the beginning of 2018 for the first time in more than 35 years.
The Twitter account is called @alcinema_sa and it is going to be the main source of announcements for all cinema news and information in Saudi Arabia.
The first tweet of the account "We’re back," is created in reference to the return of cinema to the kingdom after a ban for more than three decades.
The number of followers reached more than 42 thousand in just 3 hours after the launch of the page.
