Relive your favourite movie moments under the stars in some of the Cape’s most picturesque settings.

Cape Town is bursting with fun and fabulous things to do, especially when the weather plays along. How does watching a flick under a starry sky sound? If the thought appeals, then check out Galileo Open Air Cinema’s 2020 lineup of silverscreen classics (and some millennium favourites) that will be screened at various scenic venues in and around Cape Town until 25 April 2020.

Blankets and backrests are available for hire, and there are vendors selling food and beverages at the location (you’re also welcome to bring your own picnic basket). There’s also a special romantic package for couples, where a reserved area with blankets, pillows and Frey chocolates are provided.

Get there before the movie starts, so you can enjoy the live music and festive atmosphere (and reserve your spot on the lawn).

Check out the movie lineup and venues below, and be sure to subscribe to our newsletter for updates.

Registered Webtickets account holders will receive an email and SMS informing them of the change on the day of the event. They will then have the option of a full refund, or choosing another movie on another date (please note that no exchanges or refunds will be given after seven days from the cancellation date).
