A multi-screen cinema hall has opened in the main city of Indian-controlled Kashmir for the first time in 14 years. It's part of the government’s push to showcase normalcy in the disputed region that was brought under India’s direct rule three years ago. But decades of a deadly conflict, bombings and brutal Indian counterinsurgency campaign have turned people away from cinemas, and only about a dozen viewers lined up for the first morning show, a Bollywood action movie. The 520-seat hall with three screens opened Saturday under elaborate security in Srinagar’s high security zone that also houses India’s military regional headquarters. Tens of thousands have died since Kashmiri militants launched a bloody insurgency in 1989 that was met with a brutal response by Indian troops.

When Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi recorded the bulk of his new album, the melodic rapper wanted to visually highlight the songs without depending on short music videos. The Grammy winner initially thought about turning his concept album into an anthology series, until he linked up with “black-ish” creator Kenya Barris who suggested that Cudi go the animation route. The musician took heed and has brought his songs into colorful light through a Netflix adult-animated romantic comedy, “Entergalactic.” The TV show is inspired by his eighth studio album of the same name. Both were released Friday.
