We were lucky enough to checkout a cool new opening this past weekend involving Ster-Kinekor. Their new Fourways Mall cinema is now open to the public following an extensive revamp – and with plenty of new releases on the way, now is the time to visit!
The Fourways site now includes a kids’ cinema, just in time for the school holidays. This is the third kids’ cinema to launch, following Sandton and East Rand Mall. These are designed for children, with a dedicated waiting area to keep them entertained before moving into the cinema, where colourful beanbag seating and an indoor slide and ball pool mean the fun just got bigger.
Adults will also enjoy the results of the recently completed revamp – along with upgraded seating and surroundings, Ster-Kinekor Fourways also boasts self-service ticketing and catering terminals that streamline the process of buying tickets, snacks and beverages. And, of course, each cinema is fitted with the best in digital projection and surround sound, all the better to catch some of the following new releases:
