The Galileo returns for summer

The Galileo Open Air Cinema is back with a stellar line-up of movies that will cater to everyone under the sun, or in this case, the stars. Each year the team behind one of Cape Town’s most popular summer events returns with a bigger and better programme – and this year is no different, with a whopping 22 venues, 125 movies, new food vendors and all round awesome experience to boot!

Location is everything, so while keeping all the old favourites in the line-up, there are some exciting additions to the cast of venues this year – from Hillcrest Quarry, Kirstenbosch Gardens and The V&A Waterfront, to rotating Friday night venues in town and bi-monthly screenings at wine estates in Paarl, Stellenbosch and Somerset West, The Galileo is a must add activity to your summer bucket list.

New attractions this season include Friday night live music by local artists before the main show begins – music, movie and maybe a night on the town after… what a way to start the weekend! In addition to the family-friendly movies already in the programme there are now seven Sunday shows making their debut during the school holidays. Taking place at Kelvin Grove country club, there’s plenty to keep the kids entertained, while parents can indulge in a variety of delicious dishes in the mini food market before settling down for the movie.

With so much to look forward to at The Galileo, make sure you don’t miss any of the action…or the comedy…or the romance. Proudly presented by Savanna, doors to The Galileo open 6pm (Tuesday to Friday), 5pm (Saturdays), 4pm (Sundays), and the movie starts at sunset. Arrive early to reserve your spot on the lawn, hire a comfy backrest and a warm blanket and treat yourself to a delicious spread of food, alcohol, soft drinks and sugary treats – all on sale at each handpicked venue.

Ticket prices:

Standard: R79

Warm: R87 (plus blanket)

Comfy: R95 (plus backrest)

Warm & comfy: R100 (plus blanket and backrest)

VIP: R159 (Reserved premium seating, Savanna, popcorn & sweets, blanket, backrest)
