Imax theatre opens at Baywest

2015-06-24 06:01

STER-Kinekor’s new cinema complex at the Baywest mall will open tonight with a special screening for invited guests of the highly anticipated sci-fi adventure Jurassic World in Imax 3D.

Apart from the Imax theatre, the cinema complex will also have 7 other cinemas of which two are luxurious Cine Prestige cinemas with fully-reclinable leather chairs.

Screenings for the public in the IMAX theatre, together with the other Ster-Kinekor cinemas, will commence tomorrow (Thursday).

The Imax experience is a combinaton of crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX’s customised theatre geometry and powerful digital audio to create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are right there in the centre of the action.

Like the self-service ticketing terminals, Ster-Kinekor Baywest Mall will also feature self-service catering terminals, where customers can select, pre-order and pay for their catering choices, and then collect the fulfilled order at the catering counter to streamline operations and avoid long queue times.

This innovative technology has been on trial at a few other sites and is now being rolled out at the new cinema complex at Baywest.

The films releasing at Ster-Kinekor Baywest Mall in its first week of opening, and in addition to Jurassic World that screens in both IMAX® 3D and Cine Prestige, include: Mad Max: Fury Road, Pitch Perfect 2 (also in Cine Prestige), Pixar’s animation Inside Out 3D (also in Cine Prestige), the hilarious Spy, Wild Card (also in Cine Prestige), Survivor and The Rewrite.
