Ster-Kinekor is giving it’s viewers a very different experience this time.
Together with Warner Bros. they have announced a unique outdoor screening experience for the local premiere of ‘Kong: Skull Island ‘ film, a day before its global release on 10 March.
For one night only, on Thursday, 09 March, Joburgers are being treated to the movie premiere on a huge screen and surround sound, befitting to Kong, which will be set up on the top field of St Stithians College in Sandton for this premium cinema event.
The producers of Godzilla reimagine the origins of one the most powerful monster myths of all in Kong: Skull Island, from Warner Bros. Pictures, Legendary Pictures and Tencent Pictures.
A compelling, original adventure from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer), the film tells the story of a diverse team of scientists, soldiers and adventurers uniting to explore a mythical, uncharted island in the Pacific, as dangerous as it is beautiful. Cut off from everything they know, the team ventures into the domain of the mighty Kong, igniting the ultimate battle between man and nature. As their mission of discovery becomes one of survival, they must fight to escape a primal Eden in which humanity does not belong.
It has a 13V age restriction and the running time is 118 minutes. The film releases nationally at Ster-Kinekor’s IMAX, Cine Prestige, 3D and 2D cinemas on Friday, 10 March.
The event is being staged on the top field of St Stithians College in Sandton. Access to the venue is via the school’s entrance off Bram Fischer Drive, with gates opening at 17:30. The film’s screening starts at 19:30, and bookings are now open for this once-off outdoor cinema event.
The evening promises to be a wonderful mix of an outdoor cinema experience and a feast of delectable artisanal foods, craft beers and wine. Of course, Ster-Kinekor’s freshly popped popcorn and cold drinks will also be on sale to enjoy during the movie.
Tickets for this unique cinema event cost R120.00 each. No tickets will be available for sale at the venue on the night of the premiere. The film carries a 13V age restriction so unfortunately no child under the age of 13 will be permitted into the venue to attend this event and watch the film.

Unlike a Ster-Kinekor cinema, there is no seating at the venue! Seating is unreserved, on a first come, first served basis and as such, the organisers encourage ticket-holders to arrive early to find a good spot and indulge in the delicious food and drinks that will be on sale throughout the evening – even while the movie is playing. Audiences should bring picnic blankets and low-style camping or beach chairs to enjoy the screening in comfort.
The state-of-the-art outdoor screen is massive – 15m wide and three storeys high – so everyone will enjoy the perfect line of sight to the screen from anywhere on the field. A rock concert-style surround sound system will be set up around the entire venue to do justice to this larger than life, monster movie event.
Due to the fact that this is a fully catered and licenced event, unfortunately, no food or drink may be brought onto the premises.
As a safety measure, the venue will operate as a cashless environment: the vendors are not able to process any cash payments but all bank cards will be accepted on the night.
