When was the last time that you went to the movies? Its something that I’ve stopped doing because le boyfriend and I have an amazing television system at home and we can watch 3D movies if we wish. Sure we miss the latest releases until they are available on DVD but we still watch them – eventually. Going to movies was a huge part of the initial dating scene for us and we watched a lot of movies at the cinemas. We talk a lot about going to the IMAX cinemas when we were kids and always said that we would go to the movies if we could watch an IMAX movie. Well, good news for us because Ster Kinekor is launching a new IMAX cinema at Cape Gate on in December. This is following the successful launches of the IMAX theatres in Gateway in Durban and The Grove Mall in Pretoria.
Fiaz Mohomed, CEO of Ster-Kinekor Theatres explained,
Following the successful openings of our first two IMAX theatres at Gateway and The Grove, and their ongoing performance since then, we have been assessing a variety of sites for the next IMAX theatre. It was always our plan to open an IMAX cinema in Cape Town, and CapeGate was selected as the most feasible venue to accommodate the complex conversion. We believe this new cinema will prove as popular with local cinema audiences as our other two theatres.
The public opening of the Cape Gate IMAX is on 11 December will feature a pre-release screening of the last of the Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. Tickets for an IMAX experience will be R99 each and the new breath taking cinema experiences will be made not-to-be-missed. Other exciting blockbuster titles to look out for launching on IMAX in the next few months – Exodus: Gods and Kings and Taken 3. A lot of things to look forward to over the upcoming holiday season and an IMAX experience to mix-up the date night routine is a fresh fun holiday date vibe this season!
