Pavarotti, a documentary on the life and work of opera legend Luciano Pavarotti, will become the first documentary feature to achieve a general cinema release in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia when it hits screens on July 25. Front Row Filmed Entertainment, the Middle-East's leading independent film distributor, and the Kuwait National Cinema Company (KNCC) own all MENA rights for the title which will be released at VOX Cinemas and AMC Cinemas in the kingdom, as well as in cinemas in the UAE and across the Middle East. The release comes fifteen years after Front Row broke new grounds in the region by being the first distributor to release a documentary theatrically in the shape of Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11.

Directed by Academy Award Winner Ron Howard, and produced by the same team behind the highly acclaimed The Beatles: Eight Days a Week, the documentary features history-making performances and intimate interviews, including never-before-seen footage and cutting-edge Dolby Atmos technology. Pavarotti will release across the GCC and Lebanon on July 4.
