With the eased regulations on events during lockdown level 1, many events businesses are bouncing back into action. For Capetonians that means the much-loved Galileo Cinema picnics are back! While we’ve all loved the fun of the drive-in cinema experiences, there still something magical about being able to experience the Galileo Outdoor Cinema with a picnic under the stars. Moviegoers will be thrilled to have this experience back on the menu for summer and things will be kicking off at the end of this month with a spooky Halloween-themed event.
That’s right gals and ghouls, the first Galileo Picnic screening will be taking place on Saturday 31st October for Galileo’s traditional Halloween screening. This year, the Galileo Picnic is back to celebrate another traditional night of terror under the stars, with a creepy movie to boot, of course. The team behind Cape Town’s outdoor cinema is up to their usual tricks (and treats) with scary décor, live performances and a ‘best costume’ competition.
On October 31st, Cape Town High School will mutate into the Mother City’s hottest Halloween affair, setting the scene with visually stunning backdrops of Table Mountain and Lion’s Head lit up by an eerie full moon. Pack a picnic or support the beloved food vendors on location who will be back in action, serving up the most amazing grub — from pizzas to nachos — to sink your teeth into.
Stealing the limelight this year is the captivating horror that refreshed its sinister genre: The Blair Witch Project. With the film-making technique of “found footage”, the story follows three film students into a Maryland forest where they film a documentary on the local Blair Witch legend. The project takes a frightening turn when the students lose their way.
Don’t miss out on all the fear and fright that The Galileo has in store for you this year!
Tickets for the Halloween special screening are R180 per person and includes a backrest, blanket, popcorn, live performances & themed décor. Tickets are limited due to Covid-19 regulations, so book yours today by visiting The Galileo website.
