NEW OPENING: Nu Metro at Ballito Junction

One thing that was missing in Ballito was a cinema… until now! Nu Metro recently opened at the all new Ballito Junction Mall – and it couldn’t have been more perfect!
Boasting the largest screen in KZN, with top-of-the-range Ultra High Definition quality sound, it’s truly an experience in itself.

We were recently invited to a pre-release screening of Beauty and the Beast.
Read up on our experience below.

“There it was, where I would clearly be spending a lot of time in the future… The all new Nu Metro Cinema. We walked in on a red carpet, and definitely felt like celebrities! Colourful drinks were served and snacks were dished up, made from scratch by their chef, David Molopyane.

We were taken on a tour of the cinema, and shown the different types of cinemas, my favourite being the VIP one. What with its leather reclining couches, and an option to have food and drinks brought to you during the movie… – I know, right!

Then came the time where we were ushered to our seats for the movie.

We were told we were going to be watching it on KZN’s biggest screen, and in 3D! After a quick introduction, Beauty and the Beast finally started.

This was where the movie was literally brought to life, with crystal clear definition and incredible surround sound – I felt as if I was part of the movie!
Oh, and did I mention that the seats in the normal cinema also recline?

I will definitely be back to experience the VIP or even the all new 4DX cinema!”
