The Minister of Commerce and Industry, Faisal Al Medlej, announced that a ministerial decision has been issued to allow for several new commercial activities to operate, including drive-in cinemas which were last seen in 1974.
Drive-in movie theatres will be a stepping stone for the resumption of cinemas and to return to pre COVID-19 normalcy, according to Al Qabas reports.
Like most around the world, Cinemas in Kuwait have been extremely affected by the pandemic as they remain shut for almost a year now.
Allowing for drive-in cinemas to operate is only fitting since back in 1974 Kuwait was the first Arab country to introduce drive-in cinemas.
