New luxury cinema opens at V&A Waterfront

2013-11-09 08:00
Cape Town - Nu Metro Cinema has stepped up the movie-going experience with its new luxury cinema experience.

Scene launched on Thursday with its first screening at the V&A Waterfront, the second one in South Africa. The Pavilion in Durban got bragging rights for the first one, with the Johannesburg one to be opened soon.

Before going into the cinema, you have a choice of finger foods or full meals that you may take into the cinema with you, alongside a selection of alcoholic beverages, coffee and tea and other soft drinks and juices.

There are three cinemas, each able to seat 20 people. But instead of the normal cinema seats, you get to recline in soft, comfy leather couches. Each row is exactly positioned that no one's head bobs in front of your line of sight, and each chair has a handy table for you drinks and foods. There is even a little light that makes it easier to see what you're eating while enjoying the movie.

Channel24 got to watch the critically acclaimed Tom Hanks movie Captain Philips in luxury at V&A's Scene's very first screening. Even if it was a bad movie (which Captain Philips definitely isn't), you could still enjoy a comfy nap.

Besides introducing luxury cinema to SA, Nu Metro is currently busy with a digital transition in all their cinemas, something that South Africa is far behind in. The movie company has also bought 50 new 3D screens for nation wide distribution, as well as three Auro 3D sound systems, which makes the cinema experience for movie lovers that much more intense.

Which means that scary movies just got a lot more real...
