Theatre and Film in Jordan

Jordan’s movie theatres show foreign-language films, primarily in English. Most movie theatres play modern American commercial movies, except on culture nights dedicated to international movies, which are usually sponsored by international entities such as the European Union. Theatres also host national and international dance groups, singers, and actors.

Jordan’s Royal Film Commission was established in 2008 to develop the competitiveness of the Jordanian movie industry regionally and internationally.
