- Ster-Kinekor Movie Theatres has launched a new concept cinema to its audience, Cine Prestige, which opened yesterday 3 April 2012 at the Zone in Rosebank, Johannesburg.

Back on 29 March 2012, Ster-Kinekor also opened eight new cinemas at the refurbished Blue Route Mall in Tokai, Cape Town, including a 3D screen.

- After three weeks of release, the new South African film, Angus Buchan's Ordinary People (31 prints), has made just over R2m. It made the number five spot in Ster-Kinekor's Top 8 earners over the weekend of 20 to 22 April 2012.
