Cavendish Nouveau Les Miserables
Cape Town – Ster-Kinekor's Cavendish Nouveau will close its doors for business on Thursday with Oscar-nominated musical Les Misérables as its final movie screening.

The special farewell screening of Les Misérables is open to the public at standard ticket prices from the cinema or via the Ster-Kinekor website. The screening is set for Thursday evening at 20:00.

"We wanted to offer our loyal cinema-goers, who have been avid supporters of our Cinema Nouveau fare over many years, a fitting tribute as the final screening at our complex in Cavendish Square," said Lola Gallant, Brand Manager of Cinema Nouveau. "A special screening of the fabulous Les Misérables certainly fits the bill."

Special 'farewell wall'

Members of the public who would like to attend this special screening are encouraged to book as soon as possible, as seating is limited.

A special "farewell wall" has been erected at the complex on which film fans will be able to share their special memories of Cinema Nouveau.

Ster-Kinekor on 4 January confirmed plans to close down their Cinema Nouveau movie theatres in Cavendish Square, Cape Town, to make way for a new retailer at the popular shopping mall. The mall property managers Old Mutual opted not to renew the cinema's lease.

The closure of the cinema will go ahead despite petitions and protests at the venue from cinema-goers opposed to the business decision.

"Our regrets are shared with our many loyal patrons and we are very grateful for your support of Cavendish Nouveau over the years," said Gallant.

Ster-Kinekor assured movie fans that its commercial theatre complex at Cavendish Square and Nouveau cinema at the V&A Waterfront will trade as normal and are unaffected by the closure.
