The movie was almost full so we had to sit in the front row. They usually show the latest movies on the circuit and if you have a library card you get a nice discount.

This is a really nice movies theater that doesn't break the bank. Tickets are cheaper than anywhere else. The theater itself is OK. Not great but not bad either.

Paarl is a rural town so the LSM of the town does nit support a top end cinema. I would have thought that keeping things tidy is doable-even on low budget.

The past two weeks many of the performances of Pad na my Hart were sold out. Wonderful to still have our own theatre featuring all the latest movies.

Although this cinema is really small it does keep up with the new movies that comes out daily . They change the movies day and night to make sure everyone is happy ! The cinema is unfortunately not really clean .

This cinema ensures that we have our own two theaters in town. The owner ensures that he caters for all needs - from art films to kids' movies. Just check the times of the performances.

The owners have decided to offer more variety and there now normally screens four movies per week at different times. The latest releases are often shown in the same week that they are released. Well worth a visit.

Minimax in Paarl is a waste of time. With HD television available, you can have a much better time from the comforts of home. The service is poor and the cost fo the cinema is high for the quality. I would not recommend this to...More
