Community and stories: a movie house in Khayelitsha

Hello dear visitor or prospective visitor! At the Bertha Movie House we love stories. They help us to organise our thoughts and ideas, our responses and expressions in our societies, and our plans and commitments to change things. Stories happen all over in many different ways, but experiencing them on a big screen in the dark often amplifies our organisation processes.

We make a point of sharing our experiences in discussions after our screenings. There are debates, panels of filmmakers, scholars, NGO workers et al. These unite and divide us - and this is where community happens.

For now our screenings are free and we often try to help people with transport afterwards to get home safely. Come and join us at the only cinema in Khayelitsha. Your own film story is waiting for you right here!
