Adding to the lengthy list of reasons to visit the V&A Waterfront is the thrilling news of a Ster-Kinekor movie theatre arrival earlier this week.
Ster-Kinekor has triumphantly fought off the cynic’s notions that it wouldn’t make it through lockdown. Earlier this year, a positive attendance trend showed that cinema lovers are far from extinct, and now we have a new place to get our movie fix.
The V&A addition to the Ster-Kinekor menu is bursting with movie magic, including a first of its kind for the Western Cape in the form of a Kids’ Cinema.
The Kid’s Cinema is filled with all the vibrance, colour and comfort (in the form of bean bag seats) that little movie-lovers need, and also boasts a playground inside its theatre.
For more refined movie lovers, Cine Prestige and Cinema Nouveau are also ready to be visited, alongside 2D and 3D theatres.
Word on the street is that IMAX will come to town later this year, as well as D-BOX, which earmarks a motion-fueled cinema experience, as the V&A explains.
“We have waited a long time to get the V&A cinema opened and we are excited that it is finally happening. We hope that the people of Cape Town are as excited as we are about movies returning to the iconic V&A Waterfront. The newly upgraded cinema is an exciting fusion of the Ster-Kinekor’s world-class entertainment experience and the modern, industrial aesthetic of the V&A Waterfront,” says Ster-Kinekor’s Acting CEO, Motheo Matsau.
