A New Contemporary Art Museum for Cape Town
A new contemporary art museum is opening in Cape Town in 2017, in the historic Grain Silo at the V&A Waterfront. The museum is expected to cost over R500 million for the development, but from the pictures released so far, it looks like it will be worth every cent! The Grain Silo is a fascinating structure that was built in the early 1920s. Standing at an impressive 57m tall, it is an integral part of the Cape Town skyline. Transforming this structure into a world-class art museum is sure to breathe new life into the beautiful old building.
The Dark Tower Starts Filming in Cape Town
Being a long-time fan of Stephen King, news of The Dark Tower filming in Cape Town is certainly exciting. Described by Stephen King as part western, part Lord of the Rings, this series follows legendary gunslinger-slash-truth-seeker Roland Deschain on his journey to find the Dark Tower. The Wire actor Idris Elba has been cast as Roland, with True Detective star Matthew McConaughey playing the mysterious Walter/Man in Black and Vikings star Katheryn Winnick in a yet-to-be announced role.
