Over the years, The Bioscope has proudly presented events outside the confides of our 62 seater in Maboneng. Across rooftops, in late night arcades, and even on still lakes at night, Johannesburg has enjoyed presenting cinema in unique way. The moment any of these special events are locked down, they will appear here. So outside of this page, and unless otherwise clearly stated, please assume all other Bioscope events are taking place inside our cinema in Maboneng.
THE LATE NIGHT ARCADE #3 – 2 March
The late Night Arcade is exactly what the name implies. Its an after-hours arcade in one of Joburg’s new rooftop events venue, The Birdhouse, with a bar, arcade games, VR games, indie games, and even an outdoor cinema in partnership with The Bioscope Independent Cinema.
R100 will get you in, with all the games and screenings free of charge. On the night, tickets will be R120 at the door. There will be a cash bar, and pizza for the hungry. All this, with one of the best views of Joburg around you! This one is for everyone looking for something different on a night out in Joburg, and all those that fondly remember the arcades they trawled as kids.
We’re announcing new additions all the time, so keep in touch by following us at @thelatenightarcade on facebook and instagram.
