The Galileo Open Air Cinema: Movies Under The Stars

The Galileo Open Air Cinema: Movies Under The Stars

Relive your favourite movie moments at one of these outdoor venues this summer.

Cape Town is bursting with fun and fabulous things to do, especially when the southeaster is behaving itself. How does watching a flick under a starry sky sound?

If the idea appeals, check out Galileo Open Air Cinema’s 2021/ 2022 lineup of big-screen favourites that will be screened from Thursday to Sunday every week at various scenic venues in and around Cape Town until 24 April 2022, with an exclusive Royale experience on the first Wednesday of the month.

The Galileo Picnic

The Galileo Picnic Radisson Blu Cape Town

Why not make an evening of it and enjoy a pre-movie picnic while you’re at it? Blankets, backrests and popcorn are available to pre-order, and there are vendors dotted around the venue, such as 2 Kitchens and Butler’s Pizza, selling tasty things to eat and drink. Or, should you prefer, you’re welcome to bring your own hamper (to most venues).

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

Love birds should book the VIP or Double Delight experience that includes reserved seating and snacks.
