Ster-kinekor Opens First Kids Cinema At East Rand Mall

Modern and comfortable make-over includes top-of-the-line seats, carpets and air-conditioning

The Ster-Kinekor at East Rand Mall in Boksburg had undergone renovations . . .  and it’s re-opening with a bang . . . and kids won’t stop smiling!

Friday will see the opening for Ster-Kinekor’s FIRST-EVER Kids cinema. The cinema has multi-coloured seats, for added pizzazz and comfort, of course. Then there are the colourful curtains that can turn any frown upside down.  It looks magical and feels magical too!

Outside cinema 5 is a specially designed, glass cube, which serves as a play station for kids that will fill their hearts with joy and excitement, before the movie starts.

Prepare for loads of fanfare on Friday, with kid’s activities such as colouring-in sheets and balloons aplenty, tying in with the release of Despicable Me 3. The movie continues the adventures of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters “Margo, Edith and Agnesa” and the Minions.

Now mums and dads can add a little extra cheer to a family outing at the movies.  Parents can also book the glass cube for unforgettable kiddies’ parties. One thing’s for sure, kids will bring the fun spirit of their pre-movie celebrations into the cute and inviting cinema.  Now that’s the way to party!

Cinema-goers will be blown away by the other improvements at the cinema that will go a long way to contributing to an extra-special time at the movies.

The face-lift includes the main cinema foyer undergoing a complete redevelopment for a warm welcome. All seven cinemas were also remodelled with the most modern designs and trends to keep movie-goers in the fray.

Forget about dodgy bathrooms, they were refitted, and all the air conditioning units throughout the complex were replaced with upgraded units.

For trendy comfort, the best carpeting and the latest in cinema seating were fitted in all nine cinemas to ensure maximum enjoyment while immersing yourself in the latest blockbusters on the big screen.

For a streamlined experience, the layout of the cinema has changed, with an express counter to the left and six new self-service terminals, where you can book tickets and book and pay for catering combos. Customers can simply collect their order at the catering counter, now that’s less time spent in a queue and more time to enjoy with family and friends.

Don’t miss the re-opening of the cinema and the official release of Despicable Me 3 on Friday (30 June), and experience a fuss-free, fun, family trip to the movies, with a special treat for the little ones.

dvd / blu-ray Review

The Monster (DVD) : Review

Film

A mother, Kathy (Zoe Kazan), and daughter, Lizzy (Ella Ballentine), breakdown en-route to Lizzy’s father, Roy (Scott Speedman). While stuck on a secluded, dark road they confront a terrifying monster.

Told as a series of flashbacks, while stuck in their vehicle, we learn of the sordid past of Kathy, how Roy left her, and the love and hate felt for Kathy by Lizzy. It becomes clear, that the monster the is now pursuing them, is also a metaphor for the demons of each character.

While the plot is straight forward, and the locations very limited, the film does manage to build tension. It provides enough drama to sustain a viewer whilst the monster creeps up for its next attack on those who are trying to assist the girls.

The Monster has a straight forward plot, which at first takes a bit of time to get to the actual monster part, but providing enough character development to evoke thought in the viewer, and in so doing, toss out a herring to the plot.

A pretty average horror, that will provide a bit of tension and thrills, to fans of the genre.

Disc

Overall, the disc is of a high technical quality, with a decent horror for the main feature.

The Monster is available now, to purchase on disc, in South Africa.

Video

Video is encoded at a high average bitrate. There are no visible artefacts on screen. Colours are vibrant where applicable, with no visible bleed. Contrast is maintained at a fair level, with darker scenes (of which there are many) keeping their detail.

Viewers with the necessary hardware or software can scale up to a larger screen or higher resolution, should they wish.

Audio

Audio is presented in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and a 2.0 mix. Dialogue is clear via the centre speaker, with the front channels carrying most of the sound. The surround channels are used to expand the on-screen world, and further immerse the viewer in the story.

Navigation

Navigation is simple, with text links on the main menu to play the movie, chapters, and audio. The main menu is static, with accompanying music.

The chapters sub-menus each contain four colour, motion thumbnails. While these are numbered, they are not labelled, leaving some guesswork when trying to navigate to a specific part of the main feature.

The audio sub-menu has two text options, allowing one to select between 5.1 surround and 2.0 stereo.

Video on the sub-menus is highly compressed, showing many artefacts on screen.

KZN Oncology

In recent weeks, the KZN public health sector has come under scrutiny after one of the last State oncologists resigned.  Now without specialists, several broken radiotherapy machines and long waiting lists for emergency procedures, cancer patients remain untreated. Carte Blanche finds out what’s really behind the province’s oncology crisis.

Producer: Tarryn Crossman
Presenter: Devi Sankaree Govender

Report Card: Deneysville Drowns in Sewage

In a brand new regular segment called Report Card, Carte Blanche returns to previous stories to find out what improvements or changes have been made and to hold those officials in charge personally accountable. This week following three exposés over two years, we head back to Deneysville along the Vaal Dam to investigate whether sewage spills are a thing of the past or worse than ever. Deneysville’s sewage treatment plant was operating way beyond its capacity flooding the Vaal Dam with raw sewage. For months residents kept sending us a steady supply of photographs and videos.  Who will score an F on their report card and fail dismally or perhaps get the thumbs up?

Producers: Anna-Maria van Niekerk and Marzanne van den Berg
Presenter: Derek Watts

Knysna Seahorses

The Knysna Seahorse is officially the world’s most endangered seahorse and also South Africa’s only endemic species.  But how are researchers trying to save this iconic animal? Carte Blanche explores the underwater habitat of these reclusive creatures.

Producer: Jason Boswell
Presenter: Derek watts

From Bunny Chows to Medical School

How are the owners of a popular fast food restaurant in Durban linked to the sale of more than just their famous vegetarian bunny chows?  It seems you could pick up a take-away and for another R500 000 you could also buy your child a coveted spot at a prized medical school. Carte Blanche investigates how fraudsters linked to a local university pulled off a clever scheme to not only make fast food, but also a quick buck.

Producer: Nicky Troll
Presenter: Devi Sankaree Govender
