FOLLOWING the appeal for sponsors, Shap Shap Cinemas, an NPO that creates educational movie tutorials in isiZulu for ECD’s, Youth Development and Health Division, opened their first permanent cinema, on June 2, and would like to thank City Logistics for donating the container.

The founder of Shap Shap Cinema, Bianca Ivankovic, said this donation means a lot to them as they would like to show their movie tutorials to crèches, schools, clinics, gogo’s groups and community halls, and now they have a cinema to do this in. “This cinema will show all of these movies, at varying times, so that there is a chance for everyone to attend.

“We would like to thank City Logistics for sponsoring and also creating this cinema.

“We owe them a debt of gratitude for sharing our vision for this rural cinema concept,” said Ivankovic

She said they used a recycled shipping container to create this high-tech and comfortable cinema which also doubles as an educational centre, “The seating area caters for 28 adults or around 45 children.”

She also explained that Cinema Centre has several upliftment projects that they will be running for the community. These will focus on basic education and skills development, youth development and through to the promotion of business skills and health services.

“Certain projects pertain to the areas in which the container cinema is placed and we would like to thank all those who helped in making this a dream come true, especially City Logistics,” she added.
