Watch Migration at Ster-Kinekor for a chance to win your own mini-migration to New York!

School’s out, workplaces are shutting down, ‘Jingle Bells’ is blasting through shopping centre sound systems, and the end of year festivities are taking centre stage. Yes, it’s starting to feel like that time of the year again…

But, to really get you into the holiday spirit, Ster-Kinekor is inviting you to leave real life at the door, and escape into our world of fun, fantasy and full-on entertainment. The fantastic list of film titles releasing on the big screen over the next few weeks is the only excuse you need to close the door on all the stresses and pressures of the past year and shut out the noise of everyday life as you enter the cinema and find yourself transported into another world.

It could be the magical, wacky world of Wonka – the perfect chocolate-filled festive recipe to savour on the biggest screen in the immersive IMAX cinema.

Starring Timothée Chalamet as Wonka, Richard E Grant, Olivia Colman and Hugh Grant, it is directed by Paul King.

If all-out action and an adrenalin rush is what moves you, bookings are now open for the much-anticipated Godzilla Minus One. Post war Japan is at its lowest point when a new crisis emerges in the form of a giant monster, baptised in the horrific power of the atomic bomb. Can the devastated people survive, let alone fight back? Enter the terrifying world of Godzilla making his presence felt in cinemas from 15 December.

Perhaps diving to the depths of aqua adventure to search of the Lost Kingdom is your idea of fantasy.
