AMC Riyadh

Located in the King Abdullah Financial District. The AMC opened on 18th April 2018 with Chadwick Boseman & Michael B. Jordan in “Black Panther”. It is the first cinema to operate in Saudi Arabia since the 1970’s when cinemas were banned by hardline Islamic clerics. The USA based chain AMC have been granted the first contract to build and operate 100 cinemas in the country.

The 100 new cinemas would be in approximately 25 Saudi cities by 2030. In December 2017 the Saudi government said it would open the country to commercial movie theaters for the first time in more than 35 years as part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s efforts to transform the ultraconservative Saudi society. AMC said it expects “the market will have staggering levels of pent-up demand.”
