Saudi Arabia’s first “drive in cinema”
Riyadh: The first “Drive in Cinema” has been launched in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia, in which the audience will be able to enjoy the film in their cars.
According to Saudi media, MUVI, a group of local Saudi cinemas, has opened a drive-in theater in Riyadh.
The company claims that this is Saudi Arabia’s first drive-in cinema since the nationwide ban on cinemas was lifted in 2018.
According to the organizers, the cinema has a capacity of 150 vehicles, keeping in view the social distance under Corona SOPs.
In order to deal with the dangers of corona virus, not only the temperature of all the spectators who come to the drive-in cinema will be checked but also it will be necessary for them to wear face masks.
Muhammad Mirza, marketing director of MUVI, told local media that no decision has been made yet on how long these “pop-up cinemas” will remain open.
Muhammad Mirza added that the initial reaction from the public shows that the idea of drive-in cinemas will be as popular in the country as it is in the Middle East, Dubai and other parts of Beirut as it will infect fans with the corona virus itself. Is the best way to watch movies on the big screen while saving.
Muhammad Mirza also revealed that MUVI plans to open 15 new cinemas in Saudi Arabia this year with more than 150 screens. We have created many such happy moments for our people and fans. Will continue to do various experiments to do.
“It looks great, just like it was shown on TV and in the movies. It’s a safe way to watch movies during an epidemic like the corona virus,” Riyadh resident Urwah Al-Numar told the media.
