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.
