The internationally-acclaimed Avalon Group will mark its 80th year in the film industry by opening its CineCentre multiplex at GrandWest Casino in November 2019.
Kitted out with luxurious leather-clad, semi-reclining seats, newly installed crystal-clear screens, state-of-the-art digital projectors, and complete surround sound, CineCentre is set to transform the Cape Town cinema experience.
The opening of the CineCentre multiplex at GrandWest is hugely significant, as it marks the return of the Avalon Group to Cape Town after almost 50 years. By no means did Avalon wish to leave the Mother City and their patrons in District Six, but rather they were unceremoniously uprooted from the Mother City during the apartheid era.
“We will be screening all the latest titles at Grandwest CineCentre from Hollywood and Bollywood, as well as local content,” said AB Moosa Junior, the managing director of the Avalon Group. “We will also engage the local communities to host appropriate community-based events at the cinema. One of our desires is to host a screening at the appropriate time where veterans of District Six can come together, similar to such events at our other CineCentre multiplexes in the past. It will be a wonderful moment to serve as a catalyst for what will no doubt be an emotion-filled reunion,” AB Jnr concluded.
