Trick or treat yourself to an outdoor movie experience this Halloween

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

The Galileo Open Air Cinema welcomes creatures from near and far to celebrate the infamous night of terror under the stars with an eerie movie that will make your skin crawl. The question is, are you brave enough?

The 2019 remake of Stephen King’s groundbreaking horror novel comes 30 years after its first film adaptation in 1989. This creepier, modern version headlines the evening, depicting a young family’s discovery of a mysterious burial ground deep in the woods, near their new home, that unleashes unfathomable evil and horrific consequences.

Kirstenbosch Gardens is usually a place of tranquillity and peace, but things are not what they appear on this fearful evening. The Galileo team transforms the garden into a Halloween hot spot – complete with chilling décor, face painting stations for those that arrive straight from work, interactive games and a battle for best costume. Dress in your most creative, ghouliest gear for the chance to take home the title and a bonus cash prize of R1000!

As with every Galileo screening, there is a festive mini-market on location with delicious goodies for you to sink your teeth into – everything from pizzas to nachos and a bar with wine, beer and ciders. Once darkness prevails, the movie begins so cuddle up close to the ghost next to you.
