The Development and Investment Entertainment Company (DIEC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF), on Wednesday oversaw the historic launch of the Kingdom's first public cinema in collaboration with AMC Entertainment at a newly set up cinema complex at King Abdullah Financial District (KAFD) in Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia launched its first commercial movie theater on Wednesday, ending a almost 40-year ban on cinemas under a push by the crown prince to modernize the deeply conservative Muslim kingdom.

Now it's the turn of "Black Panther".

"The UN Secretary-General met with Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and His Royal Highness the Saudi Crown Prince". The film will be screened on April 18th with a gala premiere in Riyadh.

AMC Entertainment, which is the largest theatrical exhibitor in the world with approximately 1,000 theaters and 11,000 screens across the globe, won the first licence to operate movie theaters in the kingdom and runs the Riyadh cinema. However, the release of "Black Panther" will be more traditional in the sense that citizens will visit an AMC Theatre to view it. The kingdom says there will be 300 cinemas with around 2,000 screens built by 2030.

"Praise god that we have arrived at cinema in Saudi Arabia, and no one will mourn the extremists", Abdulaziz Al Mosa, a former official at the Mecca grand mosque, said on his verified Twitter account.

The lifting of the ban on cinemas was the country's latest move to relax regulations as part of a plan to revitalize Saudi Arabia's economy by 2030.

The Vision project seeks to revive cinema as a way to give citizens the ability to experience entertainment in ways that have been banned for longer than most of the country's citizens have been alive.
