The Galileo Open Air Cinema returns with a twist!

Galileo Open Air Cinema

The team behind Cape Town’s pioneer outdoor cinema, The Galileo Open Air Cinema, is back for another sensational summer of movie magic under a canopy of stars. As always, they have reinvented and reimagined their cinematic offering to entertain the Mother City.
Presenting three dazzling concepts for their ninth consecutive season, namely The Galileo Royale, The Galileo Picnic and The Galileo Drive In, there sure is something for everyone to enjoy and gravitate towards.

The Galileo Royale is their brand-new spin-off to the popular Galileo screenings taking place every Wednesday. Lap up the luxury and the royal treatment with a one hour live music performance, movie, backrest, blanket, welcome drink, appetiser and popcorn – all included in your ticket price. This unique affair will only cater for a limited number of couples and movie-goers so pre-booking is essential.

The Galileo Picnic provides the classic and cherished Galileo experience, with a local artisanal market, giant lawn games and social picnic before the start of the movie at sunset. Friends and families come together on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at the magnificent Kirstenbosch Gardens and various wine estates across the Cape Winelands for a magical evening of blockbuster movies, delectable food and beautiful memories.

The Galileo Drive In will form part of The Galileo’s schedule every Friday, as the need for a covid-friendly option has been appreciated by movie-goers across the Cape. With a range of family-friendly favourites lined-up, you can park backwards and cuddle up with your loved ones and pillows and blankets in the boot. Pre-order a selection of goodies with your tickets or bring along your favourite snacks for a nostalgic night out.
