We looooovvveeee movies and we looooovvveeee football even more so it’s with GREAT pleasure we announced Saudi theatres are back up and running for the best reason.
After a 4-month hiatus, football the Prince Mohammed bin Salman League is BACK!
Strict social distancing measures were in place as crowds descended on a Riyadh theatre last night for the Al-Nasr and Al-Hilal match, which culminated in Al-Hilal running away with a 4-1 win. The seriously competitive teams put on a great show to an empty stadium but the atmosphere in the cinema very nearly made up for it.
Saudi cinemas, dat you? Cinema-goers wore protective masks for a whole new type of cinema experience
