The Mary Poppins Sing-Along is Two Weeks Away!

From 14 December
The Mary Poppins Sing-Along

After the sold out success of the Mamma Mia Sing-Along and Halloween's Rocky Horror Sing Along, The Bioscope is proud to bring this timeless classic back to the big screen before the highly anticipated 'Mary Poppins Returns'! Thats right, this is your chance to unleash those previously inhibited musical-watching urges, and finally be in a safe space to sing your favourite musical numbers at the top of your lungs! No judgies!

There will be a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine* go down, and grease those windpipes on your way in. As well as wherever possible, we'll try to have some friends in the audience to help lead the singing and pitching!

*(not for persons under the age of 18).
Directed by: Robert Stevenson / Comedy, Family, Fantasy / 2h 19min

In turn of the century London, a magical nanny employs music and adventure to help two neglected children become closer to their father.

The Big Night In: Demolition Man (1993)

This December, lets not look for anything too challenging. How about a journey forward to a 2032 San Angeles for 90's smash hit Demolition Man!
'The Big Night In' is The Bioscope's new night of cheesy movies and all-you-can-eat pizza! That's right, from the moment the film starts, until the credits, we will keep bringing the cheesy goodness into the cinema! All you have to do is take from our staff and share the love around.

This is one for all those not looking to go out and be all fancy. This is that night in, where it was just you, a group of your friends, a bad VHS copy rented that day, and enough pizza for everyone. So come comfy! We welcome blankets and pillows, and don't be afraid to come in the same clothes you can climb into bed later that night in! This is a safe space! We'll have bottomless hot chocolate for everyone in their PJs.

Tickets: R100
*Ticket includes all-you-can-eat pizza for the duration of the film only.

The film will be introduced by representatives from the Canadian High Commission.

**RSVP to:

A 16 year old takes a year off school and travels for six months to document real life stories of the human spirit to triumph over adversity. Kasha Sequoia Slavner, aka The Sunrise Storyteller, is 20 year old filmmaker, photographer, entrepreneur, young global leader and peace advocate. As a concerned high school student, disillusioned and outraged by the negativity and powerlessness she felt as a consumer of mainstream media, Kasha was compelled to find an alternative narrative.
On her 16th birthday, on an ambitious mission to travel the world for six months with her mom, camera in hand and no clear roadmap, she finds herself intersecting with the lives of people determined to rise above adversity. Through the eyes of a teenager, in search of what it means to be a global citizen, we are exposed to resilient human stories that serve as a beacon of hope for others to take action.
Her epic journey across 7 countries introduces us to change makers who are finding sustainable and creative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues.

The Bioscope and RapidLion - The South African International Film Festival are proud to bring Shortcutz Amsterdam to South Africa. Shortcutz Amsterdam is an exciting platform for new Dutch filmmakers. They have weekly screenings in Amsterdam, where we screen two short films in competition from new Dutch film talent. At the end of each month, a jury team selects their favourite movie as the winner of the month. Their jury team is composed of actor Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner); producer Jan Harlan (The Shining), director Hany Abu-Assad (The Mountain Between Us), and many other established industry professionals.

Then, they give the audience the opportunity to help choose the best in upcoming Dutch talent. For their Audience Award, they tour the world with their compilation of 7 short films (Winners of the Month), from December until the 17th of January, in more than 20 cities and 4 different continents. RapidLion and The Bioscope are excited to be included in this world-wide Shortcutz screening event.

After screening the 7 films nominated for Best Film of the Year, every member of the audience is given a coupon to vote for their favourite movie. Shortcutz collects all the votes from all the participant cities (national and international) and announces the overall winner at the 6th Shortcutz Amsterdam Annual Awards - January 20th, 20:00 (CET) at EYE 1 (Dutch Film Museum). This gala will be streamed live on Shortcutz Amsterdam Facebook page
