Soak up Cape Town’s last few warm evenings with The Galileo Open Air Cinema before the Mother City’s most romantic outdoor movie experience closes during the winter months. But worry not, you can say farewell to the season with a line-up of all time favourites such as The Lion King, quirky fantasy films such as Big Fish and foreign films such as The Motorcycle Diaries. Other upcoming movies include Disney’s Frozen, big screen movie dream, Avatar and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, a golden oldie of note!

Showing every Tuesday (Hillcrest Quarry), Wednesday (Kirstenbosch), Thursday (the V&A Waterfront), rotating Friday venues in the city (The Palms, Central Park, Fedisa Rooftop, Meerendal Wine Estate and UCT) and every second weekend in the Winelands, doors open at 18:00 and the movie begins as soon as it’s dark. Every venue offers a unique experience, from when the doors open onto a festive market with delicious mouth-watering artisanal food and drinks (both alcoholic and soft), interactive games on hand and lively music in the air, to when the sun sets and the stars come out, both in the sky and on the screen.

Bringing families, friends and strangers together, The Galileo is a not to be missed summer outing for all. Celebrating their fourth year as Cape Town’s premier open-air cinema, The Galileo has gone to town this season – there’s even a VIP section that allows movie lovers to enjoy a more exclusive experience (reserved premium seats, a blanket and backrest, popcorn, a Savanna Light and a box of Chocolat Frey) under the stars. It really is cinema at its best! But don’t just take their word for it! The WomenStuff team went to check out The Galileo outdoor cinema when the season first started and we absolutely loved it! Read our full review here for more info on the experience.

Ticket prices range from R79 per person for a standard ticket, R87 per person for a ‘Warm’ ticket (with a blanket), R95 for a ‘Comfy’ ticket (with a backrest), R100 for a ‘Warm and Comfy’ ticket (with a blanket and backrest), and R149 per person for a VIP ticket (with reserved premium seating, Savanna Light, box of Chocolat Frey, popcorn, blanket and backrest).
