Event Description

After multiple awards and festival appearances around the world, The Bioscope is proud to host special screenings of local film 'Gaia' on our big screen.

Directed by: Jaco Bouwer. Drama Fantasy Horror. Dur: 1hr 36mins.

In the depths of an ancient forest, something has been growing. Something older than humanity itself, and perhaps greater too. When a park ranger discovers a strange man and his son living wild, she stumbles onto a secret that is about to change the world.

There are many suspicious aspects to their existence, including a strange, cultish religion with a mysterious relationship to nature. But when the cabin is attacked by strange, post-human beings one night, Gabi discovers a greater threat in this emergent wilderness.

Gaia is not about a loving earth mother. Its an ecological horror fantasy that makes human history irrelevant the flowers at the end of the anthropocene.

The new Bioscope location is set to be a 47 seater cinema. We are however selling far less in order for there to be space to sit apart from other members of the public. We ask you to please keep your mask on the entire time within the cinema premises. Drinks and snacks will be on sale and can be consumed during the film, but please consider those around you when your mask is off for this. 44 Stanley is largely an open air shopping centre, and The Bioscope has a great outside space directly outside the cinema that public can make use of. Within the cinema, we will also make use of temperature reading, air filtering, and constant cleaning to make sure that The Bioscope remains a safe and hygienic experience.

After purchasing tickets, if you experience any COVID related symptoms, or come into contact with anyone who has tested positive, we ask you to please not attend the screening. Please understand that The Bioscope will not be able to refund you this ticket. We are happy however for you to give your ticket to someone else that can attend. If this is not possible, we would be happy to exchange your ticket for a future screening. This can all be coordinated via email at [email protected]
