As you may have heard, Demon Slayer’s (Kimetsu no Yaiba) movie, Mugen or rather Infinity Train will be airing at Ster-Kinekor this April 2021. I had some questions regarding this and reached out to them to get a few more details. As we know, anime screenings are rare in South Africa and as such, I knew this would not be a mass distribution. Which means, the movie would only be available at select cinemas.
Which Ster-Kinekor branches will be showing the Demon Slayer movie?
- Mall of Africa,
- The Zone,
- The Grove,
- Blue Route,
- Cape Gate
How long will the movie be available?
“The title stays on for as long as it is performing. At least 4 weeks.” So the rough predicted dates are from the 9th April 2021 to the 30 April 2021.
When will the tickets first be available for purchase?
The bookings for the movie will be available from Tuesday, 6th April 2021.

You can win tickets to an exclusive screening with ComicCon Africa
I am so glad that ComicCon Africa and Ster-Kinekor came together to put this together. When I found out I was so excited about this.
They are giving away 2 tickets to 25 people and honestly to enter the competition is really easy. For full details, see the embedded Instagram post (either above, or to the right).
Details of the screening:
- Date: 15th April 2021
- Time: 18:30 for 19:00
- Venue: Sandton, Gauteng, South Africa (I am not giving the exact location because this is an exclusive screening and I do know some people would try their luck, even if they had not won tickets)
So, if you are able to get to Sandton on Thursday, 15 April 2021 (which is Anime day) and you are a fan of Demon Slayer, take a chance and enter the competition.
There will also be spot prizes and dressing up is highly recommended. Overall, this is a great chance for us fellow fans to gather safely and fully enjoy the movie.
