Cinema al fresco all summer long – Galileo Open Air returns with 117 blockbuster films!


Cinema al fresco all summer long - Galileo Open Air returns with 117 movies!

Nothing signals the arrival of summer sweeter than the return of The Galileo Open Air Cinema, Cape Town’s first and finest outdoor movie experience. Offering a line-up packed with 117 of the greatest movies, from golden classics to fun family favourites, creepy horrors, heart-tugging rom-coms and everything in between, The Galileo provides the perfect setting for an unforgettable night out for any occasion and no occasion at all.

Running from Wednesday to Saturday and December Sundays, The Galileo adds movie magic to some of the most picturesque venues, giving movie-lovers and outdoor enthusiasts the opportunity to experience their favourite movie or favourite venue in a truly unique and exciting way. Kirstenbosch Gardens is one of The Galileo’s beloved regular venues and takes the limelight every Wednesday and Thursday evening this summer.

Fridays add a dose of variety with the rotation of four sensational venues: Battery Park (V&A Waterfront), Meerendal Wine Estate (Durbanville), Central Park (Century City) and Steenberg Farm (Tokai). Saturdays remain a Winelands experience, with 20 award-winning wine estates across Stellenbosch, Somerset-West, Franschhoek and Paarl forming part of the schedule while Sundays during December school holidays take place at the prestigious Kelvin Grove Club in Newlands and encourages a special family-themed series of events.

If you thought to pair a smash hit movie with a picturesque venue was enough, The Galileo is here to blow you away – adding a mouth-watering mini-market to every show, as well as an array of giant lawn games to bring out your inner-child (or inner-competitiveness). Other exciting features to look forward to from The Galileo’s eighth season running is the introduction of a classic Bollywood movie to diversify their offering, their annual CSI project that treats over 300 local heroes as nominated by the public to a magical evening under the stars, and their birthday week offer which allows free entry to any patron’s birthdays in that week.

Doors open at 6 pm on weekdays, 5 pm on Saturdays and 4 pm on Sundays, giving you ample time to delight in all there is to offer at a Galileo screening and the festive atmosphere it provides. The movie starts once the sun sets and the stars begin to shimmer. Reserve your seat under the stars today!
