THE President Hotel has ushered in the season with its popular Savanna Summer Silent Movie Nights showcasing all-time favourites for a girl’s night out, a family affair or romantic romp.
Joanne Clayton, marketing and brand manager, says this revival of its cinema under the stars is a nice way to welcome locals back to the hotel, and provide an added experience for guests who may be travelling for business or leisure.
She adds that from a facilities perspective, an outdoor cinema tackles a lot of the social-distancing issues that lockdown has presented. “We have applied all the required hygiene and health protocols as set out by theWHO, but without compromising on the experience – the smell of popcorn, the big screen and the sound turned way up!” Clayton explains.
The movie schedule begins on Thursday, November 5, with Clueless, followed by:
November 12: 500 Days of Summer
November 19: The Devil Wears Prada
November 26: A Star is Born
December 3: How Stella Got Her Groove Back
December 10: Jerry Maguire
December 16: Love, Actually
Tickets are R290 per person and include a bean bag (first come first served for your spot on the turf), popcorn, Whispers, headphone rental, gourmet picnic box and a Savanna. And if you fancy the VIP treatment, for R490 per person you get a reserved front row, lounge seat, headphone rental, popcorn, Lindt chocolates, Pongracz, Savanna, VIP picnic box and gift. Doors open at 6pm and the movie begins at 8pm.
Clayton recommends taking advantage of the hotel’s sleepover special where you can watch the movie from your balcony and make a night of it.
