Nu Metro is your number one movie theatre in Cape Town, open every day so that you don’t miss out on anything. Don’t forget to treat yourself to some fresh popcorn and a drink of your choice as you kick back and enjoy these movie night ideas for your family.
Games and Thrill
If you are keen on extra fun, Canal Walk will make sure of that. Arrive an hour or so before your movie to have some good ol’ competitive fun at any one of Canal Walk’s beloved spots. Whether you’re in the mood for a disco dance competition or want to flex your muscles on the high striker, Wonderland is the ideal spot to have some indoor fun. The arcade is a neon-lit atmosphere with an endless variety of games suitable for all ages. For those looking for a small dose of adrenaline, make a pitstop at Century Karting on the Mezzanine level, where you can burn off some (cheap) fuel on the tracks, Formula 1-style. These activities are best enjoyed in a group of three or more, so grab some friends along the way.
