With little kids we tend to go see all the new kids movies that come out.

The pricing is a bit overpriced ! Especially your refreshments !
A movie ticket for one today with their popcorn, drink and smarties amounts to R110.00

Ster Kinekor and Nu Metro - if you want to be viable for families to stream back to the theaters , consider a family pack special of say R200 for a family of three and R250 for a family of four which includes the refreshments !

Where are those days when R50 bucks paid for your ticket and refreshments ? Just too darn expensive for families to go to the movies today:(

Go about 2 times a month if there is something to watch in 2D (I will not 3D or 4DX), only on Wednesdays when it is R50 (parking is R5 in the evening). Do not buy popcorn or drinks there.

A 2D movie on a Tuesday at Ster-Kinekor is less than R40. You don't have to buy snacks, especially if you eat something before or after the movie.

Exactly, they're pretty much in the snack business and not the movie business.

I only go if I'm forced to with friends/family. Otherwise I prefer watching in the comfort of my own home.

Think the last movie I saw in a cinema was gangs of new york and that was because I sat down in the wrong cinema, don't recall what I was actually going to watch.

1-3 times a month most months
Note we do not have DSTV.
Watch online streamed stuff like on netflix and we get about 50% off with our multiply card at numetro and we take water and sometimes a nibble with us.

There are months like October, where the days merged into eachother and the month melted away. Suddenly it was November.

Once every few years - and its progressively worse and worse for more and more $$.

Last time (Ghosbusters), sound quality was terrible, service was slow and painful, experience overall was sub standard.

Current rate is about once every 3 years, but there's no option for that in the poll, so nothing selected.

If once per year it's a lot, last time was in May this year killing time at the mall in Richards Bay when we didn't have a car. Before that probably in 2015.
