Have you been to Short & Sweet’s Rooftop Cinema yet?

by Karisa

Looking for something cool to do as a mid-week / hump day treat?  Why not check out the Short & Sweet Rooftop Cinema happening every Wednesday evening over at Batstone Pool in Green Point.

Each week they screen a different selection of 8 short films, music videos & short animations which have been sourced from all over the world.  Add to this some great views, a drink in your hand and some friends by your side, and this becomes the perfect way to make the most of a “school night”.

They do have limited space however, so online bookings are recommended.  It’s also a good idea to get there early to secure a good seat.  In case of bad weather (like rain or wind), they will need to cancel; but in the event of cancellations, your ticket will automatically be transferred to the following Wednesday (no refunds unfortunately – but if you’re in a real bind, you can also email cara@shortandsweet.tv to arrange for another date)

The line-up is always kept secret, so everything you’ll see will be a complete surprise.  BUT I guarantee you that you’ll leave there inspired by at least a couple of the films.

To join in on the outdoor cinema fun, take note of the following:

  • When?  Wednesday evenings – doors open at 18:30, movies start at 8pm
  • Where?  Batstone Pool – Fourth Floor, Cape Quarter, 27 Somerset Road, Green Point (Look out for the Batstone Pool signage outside & inside the Napier Street elevators to the back right of the Spar on Level D.  Go to the 4th Floor, open the fire door & turn left)
  • Tickets?  R60 each & available via Quicket – simply click on the event “Rooftop Cinema” to the right of this post (Under “Upcoming events via Quicket“)

I’m checking it out this eve.  Gotta make the most of this amazing weather while we still have it hey.  So join me!  You know you want to…

I am definitely going to give this a go! Although I may have to put it off for a couple of months, it’s getting rather fresh out…
