Northmead Square

Opened in 1998, Northmead Square is known as the first shopping centre to bring cinemas back to the city of Benoni, Gauteng, South Africa. The last remaining cinema had closed in the 80s. Northmead Square is a community centre that services people within a 5 km radius, though because it has regional branches of three of South Africa's biggest banks members of the public do come from greater distances. Family-run and maintained by the Coutsides family, Northmead Square is popular and is affectionately known as "The Square".
