Cresta community’s wait is over as Ster-Kinekor opens revamped cinema complex

By in Art, Culture, Entertainment on August 14, 2016

State-of-the-art cinemas – including two Cine Prestige theatres – promise ‘great moments at their greatest’

The wait is finally over – and Ster-Kinekor Theatres is delighted to reveal its new-look cinema complex at Cresta Shopping Centre. This follows extensive renovations that saw the complex undergo a face lift. Coming out the other side, movie lovers can now enjoy some exciting additions to this popular site, including two luxurious Cine Prestige theatres.

Last week, South Africa’s leading cinema chain officially opened the doors of its revamped cinema site at Cresta, in line with the shopping centre’s updated and revamped entertainment and food court. As a result of the refurbishment, the cinema complex boasts 11 cinemas – nine of which are now open for trade (with the other two scheduled to open at a later date), a trendy, customer-friendly foyer area, the two new Cine Prestige cinemas with their own VIP Lounge and exclusive catering, and a special catering counter serving a variety of Pizza Hut pizzas.

The new-look complex at Cresta has been designed with Ster-Kinekor’s customers in mind, to ensure that every visit to the cinemas is a truly ‘great moment’.

With the centre creating a new entertainment hub around the existing cinema site, it made sense to upgrade the site at the same time. Ster-Kinekor would like to thank all its loyal customers for their patience during the construction period, and is certain they are delighted with the end result, as it looks forward to welcoming them all back to Cresta for a world-class cinema experience.

The conversion of Cinemas 1 and 2 into luxurious, 29-seater Cine Prestige theatres, served by their own VIP Lounge area, adds that extra dimension to a night out at the movies, and is perfect for a special date night or the opportunity to share a great time with family and friends. The fully-reclinable leather chairs and the choice of exclusive catering options all add to the exclusive experience.

Customers can order delicious gourmet platters, imported coffees and decadent cakes, and a variety of pizza toppings and sizes from the bespoke on-site Pizza Hut offering. All this, of course, in addition to the mandatory soft drink or slush and Ster-Kinekor’s delicious freshly-popped popcorn, which can also be served to you at your cinema seat, while you are enjoying the movie.

A welcome addition to the revamped Ster-Kinekor Cresta complex are the innovative self-service catering terminals. As with its self-service ticketing terminals, here customers can select, order and pay for their catering choices – including drinks, popcorn, combos or Pizza Hut pizzas – online via the terminals, before heading to the catering counter to collect their order.

The terminals ensure a streamlined process enabling Ster-Kinekor customers to purchase their tickets and catering with minimal queuing time, before heading into one of the cinemas to enjoy their movie of choice on the big screen.

Cresta movie-goers also enjoy all the benefits and discounts available through membership of the various loyalty programmes aligned to Ster-Kinekor. SK Club members can swipe their cards to enjoy half-price movies on Tuesdays, the chance to earn points with catering combos and double points on Thursdays, enter exciting competitions and promotions, and enjoy invitations to exclusive events.

With Discovery’s Vitality programme, children under 18 enjoy movies for free until 7pm, and all members enjoy discounted movie ticket prices. Edgars Club members enjoy a ‘buy one, get one free’ ticket deal per club member per day. With all these great deals, and saving options, what’s not to love about going to the movies!
