Nu Metro’s 4DX is an exclusive in South Africa. Now in Pretoria (Menlyn Park), Cape Town (V&A Waterfront), Durban (The Pavilion), and Johannesburg (Hyde Park), this one-of-a-kind, multidimensional cinema experience will be available at other cineplexes soon.
Advancing the movie theatre experience from watching the movie to almost living it, 4DX is the ultimate in state of the art technology delivering a fully immersive cinematic experience. Inside every dedicated 4DX auditorium, moving seats and environmental effects such as wind, bubbles, and scents work in perfect synchronicity with the action on screen.
Using state-of-the-art technology, 4DX motion chairs are equipped with three base movements of heave (move up and down), roll (move left and right) and pitch (tilt backward and forward) which can create an endless expanse of possible combinations to mimic such actions as flying and driving. The skilled team of 4DX editors, “i-Studio”, are experts in maximising the feeling of immersion within every movie without overstepping comfort bounds.
Movies are now no longer bound by their visual and aural limits. 4DX is the next step in the movie-going evolution taking audiences on a journey into the full feature film. Free yourself from the confines of the flat screen and live the experience with 4DX.
Get into the action with the ultimate cinematic sensory immersion.

Nu Metro VIP invites you to sit back and relax…
Our VIP luxury cinema concept has taken South Africa by storm. It’s the only option for the discerning cinemagoer, and we’re proud to have it expanding to more cites all the time.
All of our VIP cinemas offer luxurious recliner seating, newly-styled interior décor, and a smaller, more exclusive cinema environment. The cinemas and lounges offer a variety of snacks as well as hot and cold beverages for you to enjoy in the comfort of the luxury lounges, or in our intimate cinema setting. Allow us to mesmerise you with service at your seat, while more than ample legroom means no more uncofmortable contortions as people squeeze past your knees.
We now offer a cocktail menu at selected VIP cineplexes, and a happy-hour promotion between 18:00 and 19:00 on Mondays to Thursdays, giving you the opportunity to try the decadent selection we have on offer!
Introducing the theatre of popcorn.
Nu Metro Cinemas brings a new generation popcorn experience to our foyers. This gourmet popcorn is not fried—rather it’s rapidly heated, popped and vortexed away from the hot zone immediately after popping.
At selected cineplexes, you can watch as the Robopop machine makes your popcorn, feel your mouth water as the scent of the flavour is added, then see its patented coater, separator, and drier technology prepare your heavenly in-cinema Poptopia experience.
The corn seed we use is not the usual butterfly seed, but mushroom seed. No, they’re not made of mushrooms, but this refers to the shape of the popcorn! These seeds make large, round popcorn kernels, which is just the perfect shape for the delicious flavoured coatings.
We have 6 flavours to choose from: Caramel, Turkish Delight, the Fruit Fix (a mix of banana, cherry, and blue raspberry!), Wasabi (very hot!), Cheese, and Tomato Bolognaise! Hmmm… how to choose?
Poptopia is rolling out across our circuit now—exclusive to Nu Metro!
