The Bioscope

Joburg's only independent cinema devoted to bringing the latest in arthouse, indie, documentary and foreign films to the South African big screen. Especially recommended for African films and documentaries. This boutique cinema has only 62 seats so booking ahead is recommended.

Regular events include the monthly French film night Le Movie Club (every last Thursday of the month), the Spanish language Noche Espanola (every third Thursday of the month) and the Kung Fu Noodle Box cinema night.

Hi Goran, unfortunately The Bioscope (and other venues in Maboneng) do not have their own dedicated car park. Parking is on the street so proximity to the venue very much depends on how busy it is.
Hi, is there disabled parking near the Bioscope ?
