Have an epic date night to plan but tired of the same old outing to Ster Kinekor or Nu Metro cinemas? We have the solution for you… check out the Bioscope, an Independent and Outdoor Cinema in downtown Jozi!
Sometimes nothing beats the old-fashioned approach, and we think that this special movie experience is an excellent example of this. Think arthouse films, comfy seating (car-seat inspired recliners) and a menu to die for. You can even order a mouth-watering meal before the movie begins, along with an ice cold beer or a nice glass of wine, and it will be delivered to you in your seat. Talk about viewing pleasure!
Here’s everything else that you need to know about this awesome venue in the heart of downtown Joburg.
The Bioscope is One of a Kind
Did you know that the Bioscope is the only independent cinema in existence in Jozi? It’s true! Along with this, it is also known for its versatility. Not only can you catch some of the world’s greatest arthouse classics and doccies, but the venue also often plays host to impressive talks, live performances and film festivals. In short, when it comes to entertainment, it has plenty to offer its audience!
As if things couldn’t get any cooler, the Bioscope also regularly organises outdoor screenings of some of their most popular films (such as Jumanji and Home Alone). These are events not to be missed – especially if you’re hoping to impress your brand new bae!
When attending outdoor movies and screenings at the Main Street Life Outdoor Cinema Venue, the only things you need to bring (along with your date or mates or course) are a comfy pillow and a warm blanket. Oh, and remember to arrive in good time if you want to ensure that you get a great spot! Needless to say, the space fills up pretty quickly!
The Bioscope is a real Joburg treasure, visit it just once and it is sure to become a top hotpot amongst you and your peeps. Why? Because it provides you with so much more than just a movie… it gives you an experience to remember!
