A U.S. defense contractor watches a movie from the front row in an open-air cinema that is nearly empty on the U.S. Army base on Kwajalein, Marshall Islands on June 24, 2012. Around one-thousand American defense contractors and soldiers live on Kwajalein. With its tropical weather and facilities including a golf course, baseball fields, multiple swimming pools and beaches, the base is often compared to a country club by U.S. defense personnel. Neighboring Ebeye island, home to over 12,000 Marshallese people has no cinema, and there are severe restrictions to keep them from visiting the base.
