#GetSchooled with Ster-Kinekor and Night School and learn a new local phrase each week in celebration on Heritage Month.
If you’re looking for a side-splitting comedy head for Night School, where Kevin Hart joins a bunch of misfits as they try to get their GED, by any means necessary. Book ahead to watch it and you stand a chance to win 1 of 5 Typo Hampers – just e-mail your ticket reference number to Nightschool@sterkinekor.com.
Kevin Hart plays Teddy Walker, whose life is turned upside down after he accidentally blows up his work. His best friend might have a job for him in finance, but only if he graduates high school – so Teddy is forced to return to Piedmont High, where the principal rules with an iron fist.
Teddy enrols in night school, where he needs to cram four years of school into a single semester. But he’s not alone – also trying to earn their GEDs are a mixed bag of dropouts, including Theresa (Mary Lynn Rajskub of 24), a hardworking mom who got pregnant in high school and now wants to graduate so that she won’t have to stay in her -in-laws’ laundry room; hipster Mila (Anne Winters of 13 Reasons Why), whose wealthy family is forcing her to attend night school and get her GED; and Luis, who wants to become a singer songwriter – among others. One of Teddy’s fellow students, Bobby, even has to skype into class from the Georgia Correctional Facility.
Their teacher, Carrie (Tiffany Haddish of Girls Trip) is there to earn some extra income for reasons of her own. She doesn’t mince her words: she thinks Teddy is “clinically dumb” – and you can’t cure that. She resorts to some unorthodox, even violent methods when she realises that “teaching the conventional way isn’t going to get it done”. But with students like these, even her hardcore methods may not be enough. It’s going to be a long semester – but certainly not a boring one.
Night School is the latest comic offering from Kevin Hart and producer Will Packer, and makes good use of the fast-paced, explosive comedy style of their previous hits Ride Along, Girls Trip, the Wedding Ringer and Think Like a Man. This is the perfect film for anyone who enjoys a wild comedy ride!

About Ster-Kinekor Theatres
Ster-Kinekor Theatres is a wholly-owned business within the Primedia Group and is the largest movie exhibitor on the African continent. To most South Africans, the word ‘movies’ is synonymous with the name ‘Ster-Kinekor’. The company operates 55 commercial cinema complexes in South Africa, with seven international sites based in Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe. The cinema chain’s sites house more than 440 large-scale screens, over 64 000 seats and the largest 3D footprint featuring more than 154 state-of-the-art 3D screens across the country (Commercial, 3D, IMAX and Cine Prestige) with 132 in South Africa. In Africa, the company operates in 6 cinema complexes with 26 screens and 4 422 seats.
As the industry leader, Ster-Kinekor has pioneered cinema concepts such as Cinema Nouveau, one of the world’s largest dedicated art-house multiplex circuits, and the luxurious Cine Prestige theatres, the first ‘business class’ cinema experience in South Africa. It boasts the only cinema on the continent that is fitted with the advanced Dolby Atmos sound system (at Gateway in Durban); and has headed the return of the IMAX® Experience, with the opening of seven IMAX® Theatres across the country.
As one of South Africa’s most loved brands, it is Ster-Kinekor’s ongoing mission to become synonymous with the unrivalled magic of the cinema experience, by providing ‘Great Moments at Their Greatest’. During 2013, the company embarked on a massive roll-out project to convert and equip every cinema with the very latest in digital projection and sound technology. The result of this upgrade is that every cinema now boasts state-of-the-art cinema technology that encompasses 2K and 4K digital projection and 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound systems.
The SK Club loyalty programme rewards members with redeemable points when they swipe their card when buying movie tickets or catering, as well as half price tickets on Tuesdays. Combined with industry leading loyalty programmes from Edgars Club, Discovery Vitality and Standard Bank, these give Ster-Kinekor a strong consumer value proposition and competitive advantage.
As the market leader, Ster-Kinekor aims to spearhead the advancement of cinema across both South Africa and the rest of Africa, to ensure that consumers continue to experience movies as they were made to be seen – on the big screen. See more at: www.sterkinekor.com
