After 3 decades, the ‘curtain of fear’ will be lifted from the valley, Kashmir’s first multiplex will be inaugurated.

Multiplex in Kashmir: In the last few years, a new image of Kashmir is emerging in front of the world. In this episode, after 3 decades, once again something like this is going to happen in the valley, for which people were eagerly waiting. The first multiplex will be launched here today. The multiplex will be opened to the general public from today with a special screening of Aamir Khan’s film ‘Laal Singh Chadha’. Regular shows will begin here from September 30 with the screening of Hrithik Roshan and Saif Ali Khan’s “vikram vedha”.

Cinema halls open in Pulwama and Shopian too 

This first multiplex in Kashmir will have three movie theaters with a total capacity of 520 seats. The building will also have a ‘food court’ aimed at promoting local cuisine. The scheduled inauguration of the INOX-run multiplex comes at a time when Jammu and Kashmir Lt. Governor Manoj Sinha inaugurated one multipurpose cinema hall each in Pulwama and Shopian districts on Sunday. Cinema halls in the valley have reopened after three decades. In 1989-90, theater owners closed cinema halls in the valley due to terrorist threats and attacks.

The Lt. Governor described the occasion as historic 

Declaring this occasion historic, Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha told reporters in Pulwama, “We will soon build such multipurpose cinema halls in every district of Jammu and Kashmir. Today I dedicate such cinema halls to the youth of Pulwama and Shopian. He said that soon cinema halls will be inaugurated in Anantnag, Srinagar, Bandipora, Ganderbal, Doda, Rajouri, Poonch, Kishtwar and Reasi. Asked whether the government wanted to convey any message from this, Sinha said, “There is no message. /p>

In the early 1990s, all the cinema halls in the valley were closed and an attempt was made to reopen them in 1996. Then the state government could not get success in this. Now the state administration is emphasizing on works related to the film industry including shooting and post production in the valley apart from multiplexes. So far 500 filmmakers have applied for shooting in Kashmir.
