Ster-Kinekor Cinemas

The Low Down

Ster-Kinekor is renowned for its broad span of cinemas around South Africa. Ster-Kinekor run Classic and Cinema Nouveau movie theatre divisions, which cater for commercial and art house cinema. Their standard movie ticket prices start from R95 @ Classic and Nouveau respectively, they offer club card discounts and they accept bookings online on the Ster-Kinekor flash website.

How to Book Movie Tickets

The Ster-Kinekor website is useful for checking show times and theatres, but is a bit cumbersome when it comes to booking movie tickets. It's easier to grab your credit card and secure your seats at one of their interactive ticket tellers. The interactive ticket tellers also allow personalised bookings for people with a debit or credit card so that you don't have to wait in the queue. Otherwise, just do it the old-fashioned way and get your tickets at the box office.

Classic (Commercial)

Ster-Kinekor cinemas are equipped with Real 3D cinemas, luxury Cine Prestige cinemas, IMAX, comfortable seating, great audio-visual technology and receive the latest new releases.

Cinema Nouveau (Art House)

The Ster-Kinekor Cinema Nouveau or Nouveau division is dedicated to art house cinema, generally opting for Oscar-winning films, acclaimed foreign films, ballet, opera, stage plays and documentaries. The comedy, opera and ballet features are of a high standard and the ticket prices are cheap compared to the cost of being there, however there's no beating the atmosphere of a live performance. Ster-Kinekor hosts regular film festivals, so expect an assortment of foreign films. This cinema division is regarded as a commercial hub for serious movie goers.

Popcorn & Refreshments

The Ster-Kinekor confectionery stand is relatively expensive even with combination deals, so you should anticipate spending up to R185 per person for a movie, popcorn, Coke and sweet combo. The Cinema Nouveau kiosk menu is slightly more refined than the Classic division and has more luxurious coffee and chocolate options as well as Coke and popcorn.

Movie Club Discounts

SK Club members can earn rewards towards complimentary movie tickets by watching more movies. Discovery Vitality and Edgars Club Card holders are entitled to a significant discount on movie tickets. Ticket prices are generally expensive if you don't belong to a supported benefits programme like Discovery's Vitality or Edgars Club Card. You can also trade Pick 'n Pay Smart Shopper points for standard Ster-Kinekor movie tickets.

Special Features

Ster-Kinekor have many Real 3D theatres, which screen 3D blockbusters throughout the week. Movie tickets to 3D features cost R124, which excludes a pair of 3D glasses, but you're advised to bring an old pair if you have one. The cinema chain have also incorporated IMAX into their flagship complexes, a laser-calibrated audio-visual experience that enhances films and is presented in a standardised format across the globe. Their latest offering D-Box, enables viewers to get a more immersive feel through seat motion and vibration.

Cheats & Tips

If you watch more than 10 movies a year, you should consider joining a benefits programme such as Edgars Club Card, Discovery Vitality or their SK Subscription to save on your movie outings. If you're on a budget, share an Upsize Coke and popcorn with your partner, that usually helps.
