Super affordable movie theatre. The staff is friendly and welcoming. When you go to watch the movie you feel like you are in a community with the other filmgoers. Theatres are small but chairs are comfortable.

Not being Italian or South African, I naturally tittered a little at the name when I saw it on the map. I thought it was probably some kind of edgy, hipster place with a postmodern sense of humor. So imagine my surprise (and subsequent shame)...More

For only R110 per couple you enjoy two pizzas at Divas and two tickets to the Labia. We loved the ambiance and the whole experience was relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable. So enjoyable that we returned the following evening.

My first time and I was amazed at just how small and well run the establishment was. Old world charm. I saw the most amazing movie "Loving Vincent" could not have been a better choice for this delightful little theatre.

Heading to the Labia, is such a pleasant experience every time. I love stepping through time to the heydays of film with this gem in the middle of town.

Very cozy place to watch a movie! There's a very oldschool feeling in the cinema and the fact that you can by alcohol and snacks and watch a movie to a very cheap price is simply fantastic!

This is walking straight into a time capsule and a feel of how humans originally watched movies. A film festivals ultimate experience, can be felt and achieved here. No where else. A classic experience.

Cape Town is a beautiful city to visit and has lots of amazing natural and human made attractions. It therefore has a lot of visitors, and finding hidden gems known to locals isn't always easy. Enter the Labia Theatre, an original Art Devon cinema house...More
