SUBLIME THEATRE (article first published : 2005-01-3)

After playwright Janet van Eeden wrote a letter to The Witness bemoaning the fact that Pietermaritzburg, the Capital of KwaZulu-Natal, does not have an Art House Movie Cinema (the nearest venue being Gateway), a petition was started to motivate for a Cinema Nouveau type Cinema.

“After 300 emails and hundreds of signatures from all over Pietermaritzburg, the cinema at the new Mall decided to sit up and take notice,” says Janet. “Now the good news is official. The Mall cinema will start showing Cinema Nouveau movies after the December school holidays.”

Cinema owner AB Moosa has chosen the name Cinema Sublime and from January 23, the Mall cinema 4 will show an art house movie at 17h30 daily. The programme will change each Friday and the first film is 21 Grams.

“This is the most remarkable breakthrough and I am grateful to everyone who supported this project,” says Janet van Eeden.

Take the N3 by-pass around Pietermaritzburg, and follow the signs to Liberty Mall which is on the east of the city at the beginning of the climb up to Town Hill.
