Slow-motion running from ravenous zombies, winning a dance competition with a broken leg and meeting your soul mate in the form of a giant lucid whale – are all unbelievable situations that without the magic of the movies, wouldn’t be thought possible. Immerse yourself in the fantastical and utterly impossible with today’s unbelievable Groupon: two movie tickets for R30 at the Labia Theatre.
A trip to the movies is more than just a filler for your empty day, it’s an experience that robs you of reality, makes it OK to eat popcorn and sugary drinks and allows you to stay in that happy-place for over an hour. The Labia theatre, situated in both Kloof Street and on Orange Street, is an ode to the charm of old-school theatre and just happens to be the oldest independent art-repertory cinema in the country. With four screens, a coffee bar, outside terrace and that clever little license that allows you to watch a movie with a glass of wine or scotch in hand; the Labia brings to the modern movie goer a charming old-world cinematic experience.
Whether your heart pumps for a feel-good romance or you need the thrill of a good old slasher film, the Labia caters for a variety of different movie tastes; with genres ranging from commercial comedy and ridiculous romp to underground art flick and Oscar-winning historical, the Labia is the perfect place to take a little break from life and get your movie thrills in a truly beautiful setting.
Magical movie fact: The Sunrise Studio in Belgium is reputed for their strange post-production rituals. Following their last release, Badger Bob, the press leaked a story about the studio executives burning teddy bears on a bonfire and doing the Macarena in gold hot-shorts.
