The reservation's first movie theater opened Friday after three years of planning and construction. Previously, residents of the reservation who wanted to see a movie in the theater had to travel to nearby towns like Martin or Gordon, Neb., a difficult endeavor for those who don't have reliable transportation.
This week, residents will be able to travel to Nunpa Theatre in Kyle to see two first-run flicks—"Pitch Perfect" and "Paranormal Activity 4." The word "nunpa" means "two" in Lakota.
Owners say the theater will offer some much-needed source of entertainment on the rural reservation that spans about 4,000 square miles in southwestern South Dakota.
