“It’s not what a movie is about, it’s how it is about it.”
―Roger Ebert

So some weeks back, the Kenya Diggit! team went to watch the super hyped movie: Man of Steel. We will not be reviewing the movie because… how can we say this… we didn’t like it. And if you wanted a review, there you go. So, we posted a snippet of this post a while back and we thought, why not share the IMAX awesome.

We have traveled a bit, and we’ve had several people ask us whether we have access to movie theatres in Kenya. Yes, I know! I thought to answer that question by sharing the following photos. A huge KD shout-out to the friendly Security team at IMAX Kenya for allowing us to take photos.

So what is IMAX? The correct definition of IMAX is: a motion picture film format and a set of proprietary cinema projection standards which was created by the Canadian company IMAX Corporation. But for most Kenyans, we can just go with the 3D movie theatre in the CBD [currently].

It can hold 255 Homo sapiens and has a screen that is 17 by 9 metres (slightly over 55 feet wide). Though not the biggest IMAX theatre in the world, it is an improvement from what we had before. The audience has the choice to watch movies in both 2D & 3D.

If you want to pass time, go out with some friends or just watch a movie, head on to IMAX Kenya.

To watch a movie at IMAX Kenya, the movie theatre is located on Mama Ngina Street, 20th Century Plaza, Nairobi CBD.

To contact them for a movie booking, call: 0737558785, 0737558802, 0702028506.

At Kenya Diggit! We love Ugali!

Known as ugali in Kenya and Tanzania, this starchy, polenta-like side dish goes by different names in sub-Saharan Africa. In Malawi and Zambia it is called nsimaor nshima. The South African name for it is pap ormealie pap. Zimbabweans call it sadza.  Ugali (also sometimes called sima or sembe) is a dish of maize flour (cornmeal) cooked with water to a porridge- or dough-like consistency.

White cornmeal is the most commonly used grain for ugali. But you can substitute sorghum, millet or coarse cassava flour or even hominy grits. More or less water can be added to achieve the consistency you prefer. Stir in a little butter if you like for a richer flavor.

Ugali is easy to make so we at Kenya Diggit! thought to share a simple defined How-to with you 🙂
