Cinema, Nightclubs in Johannesburg

Home > Expat Guides > Africa > South Africa > Johannesburg


Johannesburg boasts a large number of excellent big-screen, big-sound cinemas spread throughout the city and suburbs. The major complexes, often situated inside shopping malls and featuring 10 or more screens, are run by two major distribution companies, Ster-Kinekor and Nu Metro. Ster-Kinekor also hosts the only art cinema in town - the Cinema Nouveau in Rosebank Mall, Cradock Avenue, Rosebank. Movies are changed weekly, and are listed in most major newspapers.

Tickets can be booked at the cinemas or through Computicket outlets at shopping centres. Sophisticated Internet booking systems are also available, which allow customers to choose venues and times, and even to pick their seats from online floorplans. Most tickets for major sporting events are available through Ticketweb.
