Winelands outdoor movie magic

The Galileo Open Air Cinema returns to the Winelands this summer. Twice a month on a Saturday locals and visitors alike, will be treated to a magical movie under the stars. Enjoy a laidback evening with friends, your family, new acquaintances or that special someone in your life, on an idyllic wine estate. Spread out on the lawn, take part in some wine tasting, indulge in the delicious spread of artisanal food on sale and when it’s time for the movie to start, put your feet up and enjoy – bliss!

Presented by Savanna, The Galileo brings together simple, well-executed elements that transform the ordinary into the distinctly wonderful. Screened against twelve of Cape Town’s most spectacular backdrops; Knorhoek, Lourensford, Anthonij Rupert, Warwick, Rhebokskloof, Rustenberg, Nederburg, Vergenoegd, Backsberg, Stellenbosch Vineyards, Boschendal and Zevenwacht, in addition to weekly screenings at Hillcrest Quarry, Kirstenbosch Gardens, the V&A Waterfront and new inner city Friday rotating venues, The Galileo is a not-to-be-missed summer experience.

Celebrating their fourth year as Cape Town’s premier open air cinema, The Galileo has gone to town this season, with tasty new food and drink vendors and even a VIP section that allows movie lovers to enjoy an even more exclusive experience (reserved premium seats, a blanket and backrest, popcorn, an ice cold Savanna and a box of Chocolat Frey) under the stars.

Of course the real highlight are the movies themselves, which range from romantic comedies (Bridget Jones’ Diary, 50 First Dates) to toe-tapping musicals (Mama Mia, West Side Story), cult classics (The Breakfast Club, Point Break) and even acclaimed documentaries like Searching for Sugar Man. Be sure to book early for special events like Valentine’s Day and Halloween. Doors open at 6pm and the movie starts as soon as it’s dark.
