Soldiers and residents on one of the islands China controls in the contested South China Sea can now relax and watch a movie after the first theater in the strategic waterway opened its doors Saturday, reports say. In its online version, Japan Times quoted Xinhua news agency as saying over 200 residents and soldiers of Sansha city on Woody Island, called Yongxing Island by China, turned out to view a Chinese film and mark the opening of the country’s southernmost cinema. The theater and amenities could help residents and soldiers take their minds off the simmering dispute over the South China Sea, the Japan Times reported.
