#OskarBuzz at Ster-Kinekor

February 21, 2019

It is awards season and what better way to get into the action than to go to Ster-Kinekor?

Celebrate the glitz and the glam that Hollywood has to offer by treating yourself and loved ones to any of the Oscar-nominated movies that are currently on circulation at Ster-Kinekor cinemas.

Being one of South Africa’s biggest cinema chains, Ster-Kinekor doesn’t just offer a projection on a big screen, but a whole new look at different aspects of life. “Coming to the cinema is not only about film, its an experience”, Says Motheo Matsau, chief sales and marketing officer at Ster-Kinekor

Ster-Kinekor offers 6 types of cinemas that are designed to better enhance your viewing. You have a choice to view your movie in the:

  • 2D Cinema
  • 3D Cinema
  • Cine Prestige Cinema
  • IMAX Cinema
  • Nouveau Cinema
  • D-BOX Cinema

Should you be a VIP MVP, then look no further than Cine Prestige where you will be catered to and have access to fine desserts and gourmet snack platters. Enjoy your movie on leather sofas that recline back and are big enough for you to snuggle-up with that special somebody.

If you appreciate the technicalities of all that goes into a film, then please look no further than IMAX. Enjoyed in either 2D OR IMAX 3D®, you can be sure to feel the low frequencies in your chest and the vibrations all over your body, while seeing a picture so crystal clear, it will be hard to miss a speck of dust.

Into Indie Films? Ster-Kinekor’s Nouveau is the place for you. A cinema chain within a cinema chain, here you can expect to view only Independent, art, and alternative films. Great space and place for art lovers.

For our adrenaline junkies who would prefer to be in the flick than anywhere else, please go check out the D-BOX cinema. Experience the movie as if you were in it in the comfort of your chair. With life-like vibrations that mimic the action on the screen, you can fully immerse yourself in the story and control the intensity that you do it in.

With such great options expect to see, hear, taste and almost touch the wow factor that Ster-Kinekor delivers to your senses. Gone are the days of just one cinema type with only popcorn, cool drinks and confectioneries being available for your consumption.

Oscar-nominated movies that are currently available at Ster-Kinekor are:

  • Green Book
  • Bohemian Rapsody
  • Can You Ever Forgive Me?
  • The Favourite
  • Vice

Being Proudly South African, you will be happy to know that Ster-Kinekor fully supports local films and film talent. Currently on the circuit that is proudly South African:

  • Matwetwe
  • Jumbo Goes to Jozi
  • Red Room
  • Liewe Lisa
  • Dominee Tienie
  • Die Walkure (Wagner)

Matsau did reassure me that Ster-Kinekor does support South African film and filmmakers, and involves local filmmakers in non-South African campaigns – such as the #OskarBuzz.

Watch the movies and then catch the 91st Academy Awards, which will be held at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, California in the United States this coming Sunday on the 24th of February at 5 pm GMT-8 (it will be on our screens live on Monday morning on the 25th of February 3 am SAST). Let us know if the movies are in fact worth their weight in gold and either deserved their win or were downright robbed.
