Saudi government to allow first cinema in decades

Saudi Arabia is allowing movies to be shown. Sort of:
Some 20 years after public screenings of films were banned, the first cinema will open next month in ultraconservative Saudi Arabia, but showing only cartoons, a source from the firm handling the project said on Sunday. The cinema will open for women and children at a Riyadh hotel at the Eid Al Fitr feast at the end of the Muslim holy fasting month of Ramadan on November 2 or 3, said the source who requested anonymity.
I'm guessing the lineup will be heavy on Wile E. Coyote blowing stuff up, and light on Porky Pig.
