I have many random to do things and one of them is to attend every kids cinema that opens in South Africa. I have 10 tickets to give away to see the Grinch. So hopefully you would like to join me in visiting the next cinema.
My kids’ cinema attended list
First up we watched Maya the Bee at the kids’ cinema in Sandton City and how fabulous it was. Not sure who was more excited about the slide and ball pond, the kids or the parents attending. Following that we have the kids cinema in East Rand Mall and then newly revamped one in Fourways. Did you know Centurion also has a kids cinema? Well the family and I will be heading there to do a review and watch The Grinch.
