Ster-Kinekor Theatres is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Primedia Group.

To most South Africans, the word ‘movies’ is synonymous with the name ‘Ster-Kinekor’; the biggest movie exhibitor by far (more than double the size of its nearest competitor), Ster-Kinekor owns around 60 – 65% of the market, boasting 57 movie complexes in South Africa (more than 400 screens and 87 000 seats) with 58 state-of-the-art 3D cinemas, giving Ster-Kinekor the largest 3D footprint in this territory, as well as 4 complexes in neighbouring territories.

Its unique, upmarket dedicated “arthouse” movie chain, Cinema Nouveau, currently offers 4 complexes around the country with 21 screens, 15 digital cinema houses with over 3500 seats.

Strategic Partnerships driving Ster-Kinekor’s supremacy in its market are those with Discovery Health and Edgars Club – through which their members can access reduced price movie tickets and various other benefits. Ster-Kinekor’s Movie Club Rewards programme has over 1,5 million members.
