KUWAIT CITY: Disney’s new Beauty and the Beast will not be returning to cinemas in Kuwait after the country’s largest cinema company pulled the movie from its theaters.

Kuwait’s National Cinema Company said Tuesday it would not be bringing the film back to audiences “in tandem with our values and responsibility toward our younger audiences.”

The film, which has grossed more than $180 million overseas, has what has been called Disney’s fi rst “gay moment” for a character. (AP)
