Nebula Micro Theatre – The Home of The Royal Opera and Ballet Cinema

There’s no need to travel to London’s West End to see the very best of the Royal Opera House, the Royal Ballet and the Royal Shakespeare Company. Visit the Nebula Micro Theatre in Johannesburg East for world-class theatre and musicals. But, be warned, this tiny cinema only seats 25, so book your tickets ASAP! 

The Royal Opera House & Cinematic Shakespeare

Nebula Productions exclusively distribute live screenings by the Royal Opera House and the Royal Shakespeare Company, based in London. Their two cinema venues in Johannesburg are the only to exhibit these screenings within Southern Africa. In early September, Nebula Productions announced their new home at CineCentre Killarney Mall. This world class movie house features the best in comfort seating, as well as delicious snacks and drinks. Hosting screenings every Sunday at 13:00, the CineCentre at Killarney Mall is set to become the home of the Royal Opera and Ballet Cinema in the north of Johannesburg.

The Nebula Micro Theatre 

For those of you who hail from the east of Johannesburg, there is a hidden treasure waiting in Benoni, the Nebula Micro Theatre. Although much smaller than the CineCentre complex, the Nebula Micro Theatre makes up for its diminutive stature with an unrivaled sensory experience. Seating only 25 bums at a time, this really is a mini movie house. Nevertheless, this cinema is still able to carry the gravitas of London’s best live productions, bringing all the drama, dance and debauchery right to the heart of Ekurhuleni!

What’s On

The Nebula Micro Theatre not only brings you the very best of Royal Opera House and the Royal Shakespeare Company, they also screen concerts by world-famous artists and orchestras, West End Musicals and more. Here’s our top picks for the Nebula Spring season:

An American In Paris 

The Tony award-winning Broadway musical, An American in Paris, is headed straight to Joburg this September. An American GI’s chance encounter with a beautiful young dancer sees the sparkling city of Paris become the backdrop to a sensuous, modern romance of art, friendship and love in the aftermath of war. Based on the MGM film of the same name, An American in Paris features the music and lyrics of George and Ira Gershwin, as well as breathtaking design and choreography. If you’re in the mood for a little romance this spring, then this is a must-see.
