Ster-Kinekor will open its first 3D cinema in Limpopo


Ster-Kinekor will open its first 3D cinema in Limpopo in 2011 as part of its six state-of-the-art cinemas with full digital sound in the Polokwane Mall of the North shopping centre. The cinema complex is 2100m2, seats 996 patrons and is expected to create employment for between 15 and 20 people.

"The group has chosen this mall as it is believed to be the first super-regional mall of its size and stature in Polokwane, strategically positioned to serve the entire northern region, including the cross-border market," says Crawford Leitch, group property and development executive for Ster-Kinekor Theatres.

The 75 000m2 shopping centre, with its 180 new shops offering a wide selection of leading brands and fashion, is owned and developed by JSE-listed company Resilient Property Income Fund, Flanagan & Gerard and Moolman Group. Anchor tenants include two supermarkets Pick n Pay and Checkers, which are in excess of 5 000sqm, joined by Edgars, Woolworths and Game, as well as the cinema complex.
