At the launch of The Labia’s Thundafund campaign - an attempt to revive Cape Town’s only remaining independent movie theatre. This is a place where you can buy popcorn in a brown paper bag, and have a beer while watching a movie. It’s my favourite part of living in Cape Town, and I know I’m not the only one. We now have a chance to actively preserve this very precious establishment. They have all these great rewards for pledging - I think I’ll go for the option of buying a seat in the original theatre (from 1949) - I’ll get to have my name and favourite movie quote engraved on it! How cool is that? #thelabia #digitalgold ๐ŸŽฅ (at Labia Theatre)
