Ster Kinekor – Sandton City

December 10, 2009 Leave a comment

Last week I was in JHB for a meeting. When it was done I had a couple of hours to kill before my flight. So I made my way to Sandton City to catch a movie. In the end I went with ‘Old Dogs’… for the review click here. Anyway, I thought I’d take the chance to give you a bit of a cinema review.

The Ster Kinekor at Sandton city was pretty cool. There are some renovations going on, which means that the escalator going directly into the cinema area is out of order. But that wasn’t too much of a mission. There seems to be a few Playstation promotions going on in the area as well – 1 in near the ticket area, and 1 in the popcorn area… which you get to after you’ve gone through the ticket check place. It definitely gives the younger folk something to do while they wait for their film.

The service was awesome. There were more than enough staff on hand for ticket bookings. We decided to use the self service machines though. There were about 4 of them in total, all working, and booking was a pleasure. The popcorn area was also good. No long queues, quick service. I didn’t even have to put salt on my popcorn.

The only criticism I have is that there was a longer than necessary delay between the trailers and the feature film. I guess they were having some trouble in the projection room. But let’s be honest, that isn’t really a big deal.

All in all a pretty good experience.
