Nebula Cinemas 

Nebula Production Company are the exclusive cinematic distributors for The Royal Opera House and The Royal Shakespeare Co. for Southern Africa, bringing audiences the best recorded performances straight from London at their venues around Johannesburg. In August, Nebula Cinemas announced that they would be shutting down their venue at Delta Park to move onto bigger and better things. Fans were told to keep their ears to the ground as the cinema negotiated to find their new home.

CineCentre Killarney 

Now, Nebula Cinemas have finally announced their new partnership – CineCentre at Killarney Mall! This world class cinema offers Royal Opera fans more comfort and a greater variety of awesome shows. As one of the only exhibitors of ROH and Royal Shakespeare Company productions, this CineCentre is about to get a whole lot more popular.

CineCentre is an exclusive cinema complex managed by the Avalon Group. What sets their cinema experience apart from all others is comfort, convenience and curated entertainment. Firstly, CineCentre’s seating is to die for! Closer to couch than cramped movie house chair, these seats will help you relax and enjoy your Royal Opera House experience (these screenings are often over three hours long, so comfort is a must).

Nebula Cinemas

Situated at the central Killarney Mall, CineCentre is accessible from all corners of Joburg. So, whether you live in the city centre, in the trendy north or way out in the west, you are never further than an hour away from your favourite cinema experience. Those of you who dwell in the East of Johannesburg can take a short trip to the Nebula Micro Cinema in Benoni. While a lot smaller than CineCentre, this independent cinema house offers just as much good culture and great cinema.

Royal Opera House and Royal Shakespeare Company screenings will be held at CineCentre Killarney Mall every Sunday at 13:00. There will also be a few surprise screenings in store, so keep an eye on their Facebook page for updates.

Funny Girl Musical

Funny Girl is originally a 1964 musical, from the book by Isobel Lennart. Synonymous with its original star, Barbra Streisand, who reprised the lead role in the successful film version for which she shared the Academy Award for Best Actress, Funny Girl is a Broadway classic.

This semi-autobiographical musical tells the bitter-sweet story of Fanny Brice, whose vocal talents and comedic ability saw her rise from Brooklyn music hall singer to Broadway star. Of course, there is a darker side to every tale. Watch as Fanny’s tempestuous relationship with gambler Nicky Arnstein unfolds through a serendipitous marriage of song and dance.

Featuring some of the most iconic songs in film and theatre history, including “People” and “Don’t Rain On My Parade”Funny Girl is a must-see.

The Royal Ballet’s Coppèlia

Coppèlia is a comic ballet, first performed in 1870. With original score by Léo Delibes, the Royal Ballet will whisk you away on an adventure with this whimsical performance. Mayara Magri dances Swanilda, while Cesar Corrales performs the role of Franz. Thomas Whitehead dances the conniving Dr Coppélius.

Coppèlia tells the story of a young man, Franz, who inadvertently falls in love with a life-size mechanical doll invented by Dr Coppélius. Devastated by his betrayal, Franz’ betrothed, Swanilda, schemes to learn more about this Coppèlia. Franz plans to meet his beloved by climbing her balcony to where she sits and reads, motionless day after day. But, when Dr Coppélius discovers their plans, things start to unravel. The Doctor plans to steal Franz’ spirit to transfer it to the lifeless Coppèlia! He prepares a deadly spell, but Franz narrowly escapes with the help of Swanilda.

Franz and Swanilda reunite, much to the celebration of the townspeople. Meanwhile, the mayor pays off Dr Coppélius and they all live happily ever after.
