‘Black Panther’ in Saudi Arabia? Hollywood Sweeps Into Islamic Kingdom


Saudi Arabia wants to do more than export oil. So it’s importing popcorn machines.

On Wednesday, when moviegoers in Riyadh take their seats to watch a screening of Walt Disney Co.’s “Black Panther,” it will be the first time a Hollywood movie has played in a theater in Saudi Arabia in 35 years. AMC Entertainment Holdings Inc., the world’s largest movie theater company, is the first to operate in Saudi Arabia since a longtime ban on cinemas was lifted five months ago.
