Ster Kinekor has secured its fifth multiplex site in the U.K, the latest addition to the South African exhib’s ambitious $235 million European expansion.

The planned 10-screener in Basingstoke, a small city west of London, brings Ster Kinekor’s European total to 30 sites. An additional 14 are planned.
