The Galileo Open Air Cinema is back for lucky number 7

If you’re anything like us, you’ll be excited to read the headline ‘Summer is coming’, and nothing better introduces the change of season in Cape Town quite like movies under the stars with The Galileo Open Air Cinema.

The recipe is beautifully simple; great movies to suit all tastes, a festive food market of local gourmet goodness and the option to pack your own picnic to enjoy ‘al fresco’. What could be better than the chance of spending time in the beautiful outdoors, under a ceiling of stars, falling in love all over again with your favourite flicks and the sheer beauty of the Mother City.

What to expect

This season, you’ll be spoiled with a whole host of new venues and movies on offer with no price increases! Take your pick from various regular venues, from Kirstenbosch Gardens to Central Park in Century City, as well as brand new partner venues at Glenellen Farm, Kenilworth Racecourse, Rustenburg Girls’ High School, Willowbridge Mall and a sensational new spot at the V&A Waterfront’s ‘Battery Park’. Your favourite summer staple is now also coming to you every Saturday at a different wine estate across the gorgeous Cape Winelands, which leaves zero excuse to stay home on the weekends.

Kick-starting on October 17th, The Galileo’s seventh season of movie magic will also combine another year’s worth of giving back through their various CSI efforts, as they team up with various charities across the province for some serious summer happiness.

Movies start when the light fades and if it’s not quite warm enough for you yet, grab one of their blankets and back rests and cuddle up close. This season, The Galileo Open Air Cinema has you covered for date nights, work events, family outings and the perfect way to entertain your friends (minus the dishes)!
