See, hear and feel ‘Beauty and the Beast’ like never before

Gaston (Luke Evans) is relentless in his pursuit of Belle (Emma Watson) in Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, a live-action adaptation of the studio's animated classic directed by Bill Condon which brings the story and characters audiences know and love to life.

One of cinema’s most beloved tales, Beauty and the Beast – the “tale as old as time” – will enchant Pretoria moviegoers in 4DX and Xtreme at Nu Metro Menlyn Park currently on show.

These special pre-release screenings of the new live-action version of the Disney classic take place for six days only (all shows daily; exclusive to 4DX and Xtreme at Menlyn Nu Metro); a week before the movie’s general release nationwide on Thursday, 13 April, ahead of the Easter long weekend.

4DX at Nu Metro Menlyn Park present movie-goers with an unprecedented experience of Beauty and the Beast, realised through ground-breaking new cinema technology. Nu Metro’s multi-sensory 4DX cinemas will bring to life the magic of Disney’s most epic love story – the seats will move in sync with every single scene of action on-screen, along with all the other 4DX effects (wind, water spray, fog, bubbles, scents, lightning and lots more).

Xtreme is Nu Metro Menlyn’s fully immersive Premium Large Format Screen-brand. This technologically advanced cinema will project Beauty and the Beast ahead of release on one of the largest, brightest screens in the city – with superior 360° sound (through Barco Auro™ sound technology), along with refined RealD 3D projection equipment (for clearer, crisper ultra high definition visuals).

The live-action adaptation of Disney’s animated classic Beauty and the Beast is a stunning, cinematic event. “Nu Metro’s special early engagement of this highly-anticipated blockbuster in our 4DX and Xtreme cinemas will showcase the film in a truly immersive cinema environment that can’t be duplicated via any other platform or medium,” explains Nu Metro Managing Executive, Nitesh Matai.

Beauty and the Beast is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a Beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realise the kind heart of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s father; Josh Gad as LeFou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Ewan McGregor as Lumière, the candelabra; Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Audra McDonald as Madame de Garderobe, the wardrobe; GuguMbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; Hattie Morahan as the enchantress; and Nathan Mack as Chip, the teacup; with Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs Potts.

This all-time favourite Disney fairy tale celebrates one of the most beloved stories ever told. It incorporates themes of love, friendship, good versus evil, mystery and suspenseful drama – along with moving music and spectacular special effects – transporting the viewer to a whole new world with an ultimate display of movie magic. It is a Big Screen movie experience guaranteed to not only touch you with a song in your heart, but will also bring back all the memories of when you first heard the story of beauty and her beast – now remade for a contemporary generation of fans.
