The Galileo Open Air Cinema: Summer Schedule

The Galileo Open Air Cinema is all the rage for summer. It’s such a vibe with food stalls and snacks, what better way to celebrate summer, not to mention COVID friendly as it’s outside and socially distanced.

At Galileo, which celebrates 10 years of incredible outdoor experience, you get to watch newly released movies (like Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman) and the classics (Breakfast At Tiffany’s, Dirty Dancing) in magical area’s: Picnic with your mates and family in beautiful botanical gardens or majestic Winelands. At the Galileo Royale, you can also get a jaw-dropping backdrop and a VIP experience. 



Galileo picnics at Kirstenbosch are magical, Cape Town’s favourite stunning botanical garden, are now bucket list experiences. Kirstenbosch is a favourite but there are many other venues, like the Stellenbosch Vineyards and Laborie Estate in Paarl. If you watch your movie under the stars in the winelands, outside a 5-star hotel, come early (doors open at between 5pm to 6pm and the movies start from 7:30pm to 8:30pm), make sure you feel the vibe and meander around to experience the tasty food served by the artisanal food vendors.
