Halloween at The Galileo

Let your skeletons out of the closet – Halloween is here! Ghouls, ghosts, mummies and vampires are encouraged to come out in full force at The Galileo’s screening of The Exorcist Uncut – The Version You’ve Never Seen. Taking place on Friday, 31 October at Kirstenbosch Gardens, the cult classic will be screened for the first time at The Galileo Open Air Cinema. Excited much?

Named the scariest film of all times by Entertainment Weekly and, the supernatural horror film was inspired by the 1949 exorcism case of Roland Doe and deals with the demonic possession of a 12-year-old girl and her mother’s desperate attempt to win back her child through an exorcism conducted by two priests.

Doors to the venue open at 6pm sharp and the movie starts at 7.30pm. Arrive early to reserve your spot on the lawn, hire a comfy backrest and a warm blanket (you’ll need all the comfort you can get) and enjoy the market vibe before the movie starts.

Delicious, mouth-watering treats, wine and craft beers will all be on sale. In theme with the evening, guests are encouraged to dress up – The Galileo will be giving away four “Warm and Comfy” tickets with popcorn to the best-dressed couple.

Ticket prices:

  • Standard: R70
  • Warm: R79 (plus blanket)
  • Comfy: R88 (plus backrest)
  • Warm & Comfy: R95 (plus blanket and backrest)
