Heather reporting from Capetown part 2

Friday, 16 May 2008 by Irene Hoofs

...and here is another great must-see-place when visiting Capetown according to Heather from SkinnyLaminx...
"Just down the road, in the opposite direction from Heartworks, is another very special place. It’s a small independent cinema called the Labia Cinema.

First built as a ballroom for the Italian embassy, the building was converted into a venue for live performances by the Princess Labia.

Now the Labia operates as a four screen cinema from its charmingly old-world premises in Orange Street, Gardens, and has recently built a new extension up the road on Kloof Street.

I don’t remember when last I went to see a movie at one of the shopping mall cinemas. Those super-sized theaters simply can’t compete with a nighttime stroll down Kloof Street to the warmly-lit Labia lobby…

…buying a cardboard ticket from a roll from the lady in the booth…

…then getting a beer or a coffee from Harold at the bar…

… and grabbing a paper bag of popcorn from the Choc Bar…

…and letting long-time usher Christine tear your ticket before you take the lot inside the theater (and the beer too!).

The seats aren’t super-comfortable and the sound isn’t surround, but the atmosphere is impossible to synthesise. It’s the real thing, and it can’t be beat."...for more information please send Heather an email...
