    I have never been to watch a movie at the brackenfell cinema so my card has been fraudulently used.

    So a few weeks a ago I purchased tickets online for a movie taht same day, 1 adult and 3 kids but when booking online there is no option for the kid's price tickets so I paid for 4 adult tickets.
    After I made the purchase I realize I booked for the wrong time and as we live an hour away from the nearest Sterkinekor I called straight away to try and change the time but was told I can't change the time and would have to send an email and request a refund, which I did and it took 3 weeks to get that refund!!! After sending numerous emails and phoning twice!!
    I also joined the SK club that same day I booked tickets online and it's not really clear about where you get the movie card from, I assumed as I filled out my address a card would be posted to me or I would receive an email to inform me where to get my card from, I didn't get either.
    As my kids had a Tuesday off school I thought I would treat them to a movie and was extremely disapointed to learn that I have to collect my card from the movies and it takes 24 hours for activiation so I missed out on the half price Tuesday offer.
    When purchasing refreshments from the kiosk I was charged for 4 kids popcorn/drink combo when I only bought 3!
    I am now trying to activate my club card online and every time I fill out the card number it keeps giving an exclaimation mark so not sure now how to activate the card...nothing very clear or very helpful!!!!

    Good day (STER KINEKOR- CAGPE GATE) DISGUSTING SERVICE AND CINEMAS
    We really looked forward to watch "Girls Trip" The queue was so long as there were ONLY ONE person at the counter. The self service queue was
    too long as well. I understand that it is movie night and half price, but seriously ONLY ONE staff member? A second staff member finally came
    to assist, but by the time it was our turn it was sold out. The second options was "Baby Driver" We managed to get the last tickets right in front.
    So disgusting because the seats is BROKEN???? The queue at the kiosk was so long and we decided whilst the adds is on to return to get the popcorn. We paid and the girl sad"""eeeeee no popcorn"" will check at the back" ALL AT SNAILS PACE??? She finally returned and said someone will bring it. FINALLY THE POPCORN arrived. I told her by the time she give us the popcorn the movie is HALFWAY?? This is
    my LAST TIME EVER AT CAPE GATE!!! SO DISGUSTING!!!! We normally go to N1 city and what a pleasure. Decent seats , spacious cinemas and excellent and friendly staff at the kiosk. They move, do their job with passion and NOT just wait for their salaries. If your staff at
    Cape Gate is not prepaired to work, get people who really wants to, because they NOT DOING ANYONE A FAVOUR! We PAY!! Please
    have the cinemas UPGRADED with decent seats. I am sure Ster Kinekor makes more than enough money. CAPE GATE STER KINEKOR SUCKS!!!!! They would not even give a tray (PAPER TRAY) unless you buy a COMBO???REALLY NOW!!!!

    On the 11th April 2017 I called to cancel tickets I bought for Fast 8. I also requested that the money be refunded. Guess what I am still waiting for the refund to be processed. This is what I call poor customer service and when I call they just tell that the money will be in my account in about 7-14 working days. Its been more than a month now. Last week when I called I had to send them a bank statement which I must pay for just because they can't do their job properly. I am most probably gonna wait another month for my money maybe 2 if I'm lucky.

    To whom this may concern.

    I had a very bad experience at the Gateway Ster Kinekor Movie Theatre on Saturday 29/04/17. I attended the 5pm show for "Fast 8” with friends and family. We had all purchased popcorn combos individually, we had to buy our popcorn combos at a separate pay-point and then go stand in another kiosk line for the popcorn, after waiting in the line for more then 15 minutes I decided to go get a refund as I was missing my movie as it had already started so I asked a staff member for a refund they said I needed to ask the manager on duty, my friend had already purchased his popcorn and asked me to hold it for him as he had to use the toilet, I finally located the manager on duty and asked him for my refund, he asked me why I wanted the refund I replied that the line was too long and that I am missing my movie as it already had started, he then asked me why do I have the popcorn in my hand and if I had paid for it, I told him its my friends popcorn and he already had purchased it and asked had me to hold it for him while he went to the toilet, this manager now refuse to refund my money, I pleaded with him but he started to become agitated and angry and he started raising his voice at me as if I was a little child. Obviously my receipt proves that I purchased the combo and all I wanted was my refund but he could not seem to understand this and his suspicious behaviour suggested that he did not trust me.
    I insisted that I wanted my money now, he then started to intimidate and harrass me as he is a big sized muscular person, he then proceeded to take my receipt and threw it on the floor and started yelling and shouting at me in front of all the people which was very embarrassing for me, some of my friends had filmed this incident with their cell phones while he was shouting at me. He said that he will never help me for the refund etc. I asked the other employees for his name and they lied to me saying his name is Adam when his real name is Deon, all the black employees did not want to help me further, they lied again and said he is the only manager at the theatre. I did not know what to do so I started to look around for an indian or white employee to help and assist me, I found an indian employee and he advised me to go downstairs to the ticketing booth area and speak to another manager, Nasreen. I had already missed my movie by now so I finally located Nasreen after some time, I explained to Nasreen what had happened to me, she then proceeded to do my combo refund and reimburse my cash. I did not get to see the movie with my family and friends instead I went back home all stressed out and disappointed.
    I believe strongly that I was a victim of racism in the manner that I was treated by Deon, I want the camera footage to be looked at by senior managers to see how badly I was treated by Deon. He had intimidated and harassed me in front of all the patrons, I have witnesses who contest to what happened to me and the theatre camera footage will reveal how badly I was treated as a customer. I want this issue resolved asap and Deon has to be reprimanded or dismissed from his job. I intend on perusing this matter further by opening a charge against Deon for Intimidation and Harassment. I will seek my lawyers consultation as to how I can get justice from this incident. I was told by managers Nazarene, Lal and Nozi that I can come in on Monday morning and view the footage as the camera controller is off and she will return on Monday morning. Please advise what time on Monday 01/05/17 I can come by to view the footage. Deon is an absolutely rude and biased person, who knows how many other patrons he has disrespected. I intend on alerting the media(TV and Newspapers) and going on social media as well to express my disappointment about Ster Kinekor and how rudely their staff treats us patrons. What happened to me is inexcusable and unacceptable and nobody should endure this especially when its the weekend and we come there to relax and enjoy a movie but instead get harassed and intimated by racist staff. What makes this more annoying is that all the black employees refused to help me they just stare and laugh at me. That's unacceptable!!

    Please note - This incident had occurred on Saturday 29th April 2017, between 5:15pm to 5:45pm, the camera footage to be pulled will be the extreme left side of the kiosk when facing the popcorn kiosk, Deon the manager was standing outside the kiosk on the left side when I approached him for the refund.

    Good Day,

    I would like to share my bad service experience received on this Tuesday 04.04.2017 for the 12h30 show LEGO BATMAN MOVIE.

    As a father working shifts and long hours throughout all holidays and just came out of a night shift this morning I had planned in advance to spoil my 6 year old son with a movie and playing games at Wonderland. We had no problems with the long queues and all which we both expected, however the lack of eye contact and simple gestures from the assistants at the treats counter is very dissapointing. Unfortunately I didn't get a receipt for the kiddies combo purchase for reference. Nevertheless it was my turn to be served by a young coloured lady upon calling out "next please" with eye contact at this pointing time.

    Upon placing my order she got distracted by another female colleague saying the previous customer isn't finnish yet. During this time i was immediately ignored with no apology and not even asking me if she may continue with her colleague's customer. I stood there for another 5-10 minutes observing how busy it was and the staff just talking over each other rushing to get through the long queues of customers. We arrived early for the movie knowing that it is school holidays and to avoid the rush and getting our tickets and treats. At this pointing time I didn't wanted to make any fuss for 2 reasons merely, because my son was with me and I didn't had the energy to put up a fight for service.

    When we entered Cinema 4 for our slot we got to our seats and realised that the chairs was too low and deep for my son to sit on. I immediately went outside and i asked a young man Barron for one of your support pillows, but nothing was available. I was told me he will try to get me one and never got it. I decided for my son to sit on his back pack for a higher support through the entire movie sadly to say. The question I have if Ster-Kenikor playing kiddie movies why not use one of your cinemas with seats that children can look over without elevation or extra pillows needed for support, poor planning and management on your part Sterkinekor.

    As a family we love going to Blue route Mall Ster-Kenikor and has never experienced this kind of lack and poor service. I walked away feeling unimpressed and that i didn't get any value for my money due to this experience and although my son enjoyed the boys day out with me. Kindly note this is my 3rd attempt to make you aware of my complaint apart from the automatic response received CAS-53429-Z6N7C4.

    Should you have further enquiry about this please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.

    Many Thanks

    Good Day,

    I would like to share my bad service experience received on this Tuesday 04.04.2017 for the 12h30 show LEGO BATMAN MOVIE.

    As a father working shifts and long hours throughout all holidays and just came out of a night shift this morning I had planned in advance to spoil my 6 year old son with a movie and playing games at Wonderland. We had no problems with the long queues and all which we both expected, however the lack of eye contact and simple gestures from the assistants at the treats counter is very dissapointing. Unfortunately I didn't get a receipt for the kiddies combo purchase for reference. Nevertheless it was my turn to be served by a young coloured lady upon calling out "next please" with eye contact at this pointing time.

    Upon placing my order she got distracted by another female colleague saying the previous customer isn't finnish yet. During this time i was immediately ignored with no apology and not even asking me if she may continue with her colleague's customer. I stood there for another 5-10 minutes observing how busy it was and the staff just talking over each other rushing to get through the long queues of customers. We arrived early for the movie knowing that it is school holidays and to avoid the rush and getting our tickets and treats. At this pointing time I didn't wanted to make any fuss for 2 reasons merely, because my son was with me and I didn't had the energy to put up a fight for service.

    When we entered Cinema 4 for our slot we got to our seats and realised that the chairs was too low and deep for my son to sit on. I immediately went outside and i asked a young man Barron for one of your support pillows, but nothing was available. I was told me he will try to get me one and never got it. I decided for my son to sit on his back pack for a higher support through the entire movie sadly to say. The question I have if Ster-Kenikor playing kiddie movies why not use one of your cinemas with seats that children can look over without elevation or extra pillows needed for support, poor planning and management on your part Sterkinekor.

    As a family we love going to Blue route Mall Ster-Kenikor and has never experienced this kind of lack and poor service. I walked away feeling unimpressed and that i didn't get any value for my money due to this experience and although my son enjoyed the boys day out with me. Kindly note this is my 3rd attempt to make you aware of my complaint apart from the automatic response received CAS-53429-Z6N7C4.

    Should you have further enquiry about this please feel free to contact me at your earliest convenience.

    Many Thanks

    I called the call Centre who refers you to an email address.
    CallHQ above, just no answer. It must be excellent business in the movies as the service is zero.

    To whom it may concern

    I would like to make a formal complaint towards Brooklyn mall ster kinekor after the absolutely shocking service that was received on the 2nd of February 2017.

    On the above mentioned date myself and four friends went to the Brooklyn ster kinekor to have an enjoyable evening out and watch the 20:00 showing of Split.

    Since we were friends wanting to buy five tickets sitting together we decided that we would like to make use of the employee manned counter in order to ensure that we would be able to sit together and no problems would be incurred. Little to our belief more problems were incurred then one could have expected.

    On wanting to paid for the 5 tickets the employee Letsholo Komane then told us we were not allowed to pay for the 5 tickets individually as we did not explicitly tell him this at the start and thus it was "our problem" and "our fault" and we needed to pay for the ticket with one transaction. On explanation that we were unaware that we needed to explicitly explain to the employee (whose job it is to run the counter and enquire about these types of matters prior to having started the transaction that each individual ticket needed to be paid individually) he took no note of this and became extremely unpleasant. The said employee then told us we need to pay with one card transaction and that it was our fault and that he would not help us further on the matter. We then tried to rationally again explain to the employee we were unaware of this and it was an accident and could the problem please be adjusted and the payment process be restarted so that no further problems would persist. He then started to be disrespectful and belittle us, conducting himself extremely unprofessionally. He became aggressive and each of us were shocked at how one of your employees could talk to a customer like that! On stating that in business one must conduct themselves in such a way that the customer is always right, his response was rudely: "well I don't work like that". By this time the couple waiting in line behind us were even shocked at his behaviour!

    Due to this I then requested for the manager who was Edwin Sono. I explained the situation to him, he then spoke to the employee and no better treatment of the situation was taken. The manager was passive and simply looked like he no clue about how to handle the situation. The manager also at no point took responsibility or apologized for his employees conduct and treatment towards a customer and more importantly his conduct towards the three female friends that were present. The employee also at no point apologised.

    Ster kinekor brand is that of "great moments at their greatest". All I can report is possibly changing that slogan to "terrible moments for you to experience.:

    I will make sure in future instances where a cinema will be used that I will not only avoid Brooklyn ster kinekor but that of the ster kinekor brand as a whole. It was more than disappointing to be treated so unprofessionally by your staff and I will make all my colleagues and friends aware of this, warning them against ever using your cinemas again.

    Regards

    Attended the 10.45 show on Tuesday. Was appalled at the poor stock of refreshments. No popcorn? That really spoiled the movie experience for me.
    Really should be attended to. Why have late shows if it's too much effort to make a new batch of popcorn.

    We went to watch a movie at Ster-Kinikor Cine 1 at Mall at Carnival on 27 Dec.2016 @ 14h30. It was a "Full House" and to then discover the aircon was not working was one of the most unpleasant movie experiences ever.
    I reported this to the on duty manager (a lady) who calmly responded to me that "Yes" they were aware of the situation and that it was reported to the "Centre Management". Surely.... this cannot be acceptable - My watch has a thermometer and I measured the temperature to be 33 degrees with sweat pouring down my back. Why is this Cine 1 not shut down for the period while you were waiting for the aircon to be repaired??

    Secondly - There is a huge dirty mark on the silver screen that is totally irritating - Can this also please be cleaned.

    I cannot believe Ser-Kinekor's blatant disregard and stonewalling of loyal customers. As a result of queue chaos at the Tygervalley cinema on Saturday evening, I left my Nedbank card and keys on the ticket counter. I live far away from Tygervalley. I have phoned the general helpline at least 6 times since then and they have given me the cinema's phone numbers, one of which doesn't exist and the other two go straight to voicemail. I've left numerous urgent messages and nobody has responded. The Mall's security office has personally sent someone to the cinema to ask them to return my calls... nix! And the SK head office number in Jhb has remained engaged for 2 days! This is REALLY BAD!!!
