Saudi Arabia is expected to give permission to cinema companies to open houses again after all of them were shut down many years ago because of Islamist and social opposition, a newspaper in the Gulf kingdom reported on Monday.
“Cinema houses will reopen in Saudi Arabia soon…the decision is not in our hands but they will open again because of social changes and the fact that they do not contradict religion,” said Sultan Al Bazi, Chairman of the Saudi culture and arts association.
“The current period in the kingdom is witnessing real changes because the society is changing…I believe that reopening of the cinemas is part of these changes,” he told the Saudi Arabic language daily Sada.
