2015-12-15 08:53

Cape Town - Nu Metro Cinemas has confirmed that the highly anticipated 7th instalment in the Star Wars-saga will be the opening title for the first ever 4DX cinema in Africa.

It will open its doors to public at Nu Metro V&A Waterfront in Cape Town Wednesday, 16 December.

South Africans will be able to experience Star Wars: The Force Awakens in the revolutionary 4DX-format exclusively at Nu Metro V&A Waterfront.

This is the only cinema in Africa being able to screen the film in 4DX – giving fans an adrenaline-fueled, multi-sensory, digital 4D movie experience like no other.

Nu Metro Cinemas signed an agreement with ACJ 4DPLEX, creator of 4DX earlier this year – the world’s first 4D cinema technology for feature films – a partnership that will for the first time bring 4DX to Africa.

4DX, which uses motion, vibration, water, wind, lightning, scents, and more to provide moviegoers with a truly immersive experience, has been expanding at a fast pace and, with this deal, will be available in 182 auditoriums across 34 countries, with a goal to reach 300 auditoriums by the first half of 2016.

“Nu Metro Cinemas is very excited to open the first ever 4DX cinema for Africa. It is a strategic move, fitting our commitment to supplying customers with a fully immersive cinema experience, utilizing the best, most up-to-date world-class technology,” stated Nitesh Matai, GM for Nu Metro Cinemas.

Nu Metro’s Head of Technical was sent to Seoul for 3 weeks to specifically train for certified status to manage the installation of 4DX technology locally.

Tickets go on sale on Nu Metro' s website later today at R150 each (limited time only).
