Tips & Tricks


Every parent knows the struggle of being with your kids at a shopping mall. Whether it is to run a quick errand or grocery shopping, shopping with kids can become overwhelming and take much longer than it should. This is because children, regardless of their age, don’t have the same patience as adults do, especially when it doesn’t involve something they enjoy doing. That’s why, at Capegate shopping mall, we put enjoyment first with a wide variety of children’s entertainment in Cape Town that will give your little ones a reason to want to visit.

Ster-Kinekor - Movie Cinema

What would going to the mall be like without a movie date? Nothing, if you ask us. So, while your child may not be keen to spend the whole day shopping for work outfits or groceries, they won’t mind watching a movie with you. Grab some snacks and accompany your children so that they can view one of the kid’s movies to watch at our cinema. This will be a great way to keep your child entertained for an hour or two. Plus, you’ll make their day if they can bring a friend along and have a movie date where they can enjoy a good movie, cinema popcorns and other treats. We also have IMAX, which offers our customers a bigger screen that gives them a completely different movie-watching experience – everyone should try it. So, visit Ster-Kinekor at Capegate and enjoy a movie or the IMAX experience with your kids.
