The Galileo Open Air Cinema at Hillcrest Quarry

Grab your popcorn and settle down at this unique Durbanville location for the 2016-2017 outdoor movie season

Looking for something to do with the entire family on a Tuesday night? Look no further, as The Galileo Open Air Cinema sets up its popular outdoor movie theatre at the breathtaking Hillcrest Quarry in Cape Town’s Durbanville every Tuesday evening during the summer months.

Each week from November 2016 to April 2017, cinephiles can pack the whole clan in the car with a bite to eat and head out to this scenic former excavation site in the Cape Winelands for a night of popcorn, picnics and cinema classics, sci-fi movies, rom-coms, dramas and many more.

The Tuesday movie evenings take place on the quarry’s main lawn area, with the big screen positioned close to the water’s edge.

If you’re pressed for time and can’t manage to secure some goodies for a picnic basket, don’t fret. The outdoor cinema area features a variety of gourmet food and drink vendors selling everything from sushi and pizza to burgers and popcorn. Do note that no alcohol will be allowed into the venue.

Doors open at 6pm and it’s best to get there early to secure the best vantage point and soak up the sunset at this spectacular venue. The films start after nightfall, between 7:45pm and 8:30pm. Chairs and backrests from home are not allowed into the movie area, but chairs and blankets are available for hire at the venue.

In the case of adverse weather conditions, film-goers will be notified via email and sms about any changes to the programme if the show is cancelled before the doors open. Patrons can then request a refund. If the movie is cancelled after the doors open, you will recieve and email and sms the following working day allowing you to choose another movie on another date. Please note that there is a seven-day grace period for refund claims – if a claim is not made in after seven days, tickets will be forfeitedn and no refund will be given.
