Spoilt for choice

If you are thinking about going to watch a film whilst you are living in Lusaka, you are now spoilt for choice! With not one, but two modern cinema complexes in the centre of town, you can choose from a wide range of films.

The Arcades Mall cinema, Ster Kinekor, has five screens, and is conveniently situated in the centre of the Arcades Shopping Mall. If you fancy a bite to eat either before or after your viewing, there are many restaurants to choose from in the area - Mikes's kitchen in directly opposite the cinema, Rhapsodies, Arabian Nights, The Mint Lounge, Plates - the choice is yours! The films are changed each week on a Friday and there is usually a good mixture of family films and those with more adult themes.

Competition has arrived though for the Arcades Mall cinema with the newly opened Fresh View cinema, just down the road at the Manda Hill Shopping Mall. This cinema is Zambian owned and run and it is the first and only cinema in Zambia where people can experience watching 3D movies. Normal films are also shown here if you would rather not watch in 3D. The cinema is keen to showcase Zambian produced films as well as more international movies.

The complex has six cinemas with a total sitting capacity of over 900! The comfort of the viewer has really been considered with a selection of 'VIP' seats - which are larger than usual and designed to accommodate two people. Just the thing for couples who want to watch a film together.

The cinema is situated directly opposite the newly built food mall - with a range of restaurants for that pre-viewing meal.

Having two cinemas in such close proximity may well lead to a reduction in ticket prices - we will have to wait and see! It is possible to find out the film schedules for both cinemas from the internet.

You may choose to just have a quick drink before the film. Click on the link to find out more about a local cafe close to Shakespeare Court./blog/coffee_on_a_mountain.html
