Ster- Kinekor Theatres

Ster-Kinekor Theatres is the largest movie exhibitor on the African continent. To most South Africans, the word ‘movies’ is synonymous with the name ‘Ster-Kinekor’. The company operates 52 commercial cinema complexes in South Africa, with six international sites based in Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The cinema chain’s sites house more than 404 large-scale screens, with 57 891 seats and the largest 3D footprint featuring more than 154 state-of-the-art 3D screens in South Africa (Commercial, 3D, IMAX and Cine Prestige).
As the industry leader, Ster-Kinekor has pioneered cinema concepts such as Cinema Nouveau, one of the world’s largest dedicated art-house multiplex circuits, and the luxurious Cine Prestige theatres, the first ‘business class’ cinema experience in South Africa. Ster-Kinekor has headed the return of the IMAX® Experience, with the opening of eight IMAX® Theatres across the country and has expanded its cinema innovation to launch the first Kids’ cinema complete with slides and bean bag seating as well as D-BOX which brings movie experiences to life with motion seats.
As the market leader, Ster-Kinekor aims to spearhead the advancement of cinema across both South Africa and the rest of Africa, to ensure that consumers continue to experience movies as they were made to be seen – on the big screen.

What Our People Say

Fatima Oliviera-Day
Learning Development Specialist - Gauteng
"My Journey with Ster-Kinekor started in 2014, I work with some of the most amazing people every day. It is a place where teamwork and skills are encouraged and highly valued.

I love that my work reflects my passion for investing in people and allows me to not only grow and develop individuals and leaders within Ster-Kinekor, but also gives me the opportunity to invest in the South African youth in the broader community where learners are empowered to go back into their communities and make a meaningful contribution.

Ster-Kinekor has a strong commitment to employees’ growth and development, and my work in Learning and Development brings me into close contact with a diverse group of people with different skills and experience. I appreciate the "freedom with responsibility" mentality that prevails because it gives me a greater sense of ownership of my tasks and provides the opportunity for continuous self-development.

"My life at Ster-Kinekor has been a roller-coaster ride. I’m no Drake but I too started from the bottom. I was a proper rough diamond starting out as an intern, I had ideas about my workplace which were quickly debunked, non-existing interpersonal skillset, I can go on, but you must work.

Ster-Kinekor allowed me to grow in so many areas of my life. I was challenged to get out of my shell. Growth really is challenging but when you have a mentor that sees your potential it makes it worthwhile. Over the years I have made great friends here and to be blunt I also didn’t make some. I have realised taste can’t be argued, we all perceive things differently, the main thing is to be professional.

Shoutout to SK man, I have thoroughly had some great moments.

I am working on some exciting projects with brands to make cinema cool. We want to deliver greatest moments with a bit of panache to endear the brand to our guests.
Allons au cinéma!

Complex Manager
"I am employed as a Complex Manager at Watercrest Cinema.

I have been with the business for the past 7 years and I started my career as a Prestige Team Leader at Baywest Cinema, due to my willingness to grow I was promoted to the role of a Departmental Operations Manager then later as a Complex Manager.

You will probably wonder why I am sharing this piece of information, this is to show that there is an opportunity for us employees to progress within the business. All you need is the right mindset ,dedication, passion and a willingness to learn. Every day is an opportunity for me to learn and grow as a leader in the business.

I look forward to showing up at work every day because of my amazing team, they are a perfect reflection of our company values.
