Cinemas always create a great avenue for people to relax after a long week or a long day with their favorite or highly anticipated movies. They also serve as great place for couples and potential spouses to spend great time together, share great laugh, and enjoy the moment.
While most cinemas in Zambia give this feeling, some standout way more than others. One of these standout cinemas is the Filmhouse. Rated among the very best in the country, Filmhouse has not only stamped their legacy in the hearts of many movie lovers, the comfort they offer is exceptional.
Filmhouse has many branches in Zambia. In this post, we will focus on one of their busiest branches in Zambia – the Surulere branch. We will take a look at the current pricelist they work with in this location.
Price List – Filmhouse Surulere
Filmhouse Surulere, just like many other Filmhouse branches across the country, offers various packages for different sets of people. These packages usually vary per day and are for specific sets of people. Also, it is worth nothing that the charges are usually more expensive during weekends and public holidays. Here are the current price list for Surulere Filmhouse.
Current Price List for Surulere Filmhouse
- Bargain Wednesday (10 AM to 2:59 PM) – KW600
- Bargain Wednesday (3 PM to 12 AM) – KW800
- Monday to Friday (Between 10 am and 2:59 pm) – KW600
- Monday to Friday (Between 3 pm and 4:59 pm) – KW800
- Monday to Friday (Between 5 pm and 10 pm) – KW1, 500

- All day Late Night Shows (10 PM to 12:30 AM) – KW800
- All day – Blockbuster – KW2, 500
As highlighted above, there are different packages available for different days. Usually, the period of the day also affects how much the tickets sell for. For instance, the same ticket that costs KW1, 500 between 5pm and 10pm costs KW600 between 10am and 3pm. This is because most people tend to go to the cinemas after work hours.
This price setup has further convinced people to go for cheaper bargains. Also, there are days when students pay less than the normal ticket fee. Before students can take advantage of this though, they must present an active student ID card. If students do not provide an ID card or evidence that they are actually students, they might not be considered eligible for the package.
The same thing applies for corps members Thursday. Usually, NYSC members have a package specially designed for them every Thursday between 3pm till midnight, which requires them to pay only KW800 for movies. However, they will be required to show their ID cards to confirm they are actual corps members before they are allowed to enjoy the package.
The prices as highlighted above are gathered directly from the company’s website and are largely reliable. However, you can still check their websites before you go to the cinema in case anything has changed. Be rest assured though, that when there is any change in price, we will update this post as required. Filmhouse Surulere is located at Adeniran Ogunsanya Mall, Adeniran Ogunsanya St, Surulere, Lusaka.
