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 HAUNTED FOREST
