The Galileo Open Air Cinema at the V&A Waterfront

Get your weekly dose of classics, dramas, action movies and more at these outdoor summertime screenings

Give yourself (and your loved ones) a pre-weekend treat with a movie night under the stars at a secluded spot amidst the hustle and bustle of one of the Mother City’s foremost tourist attractions. The Galileo Open Air Cinema is back at the Croquet Lawn at the V&A Waterfront every Thursday this summer from November 2016 to April 2017.

Each week, film fanatics get to sit back, relax and enjoy killer flicks, from cult classics and rom-coms to sci-fi thrillers and dramas, under the twinkling skies at this elevated lawn atop the Waterfront’s Ulundi parking garage. Throw in popcorn, picnics and a stunning location to boot, and the screenings definitely trump showings in a regular four-walled theatre.

Though you can bring your own food to The Galileo Open Air Cinema, it may not be worth it to pack a basket as there will be a sumptuous selection of eats from renowned vendors. And because watching a movie without popcorn is basically a sin, there will also be popcorn to munch on. Not to mention, the on site bar will be on hand to quench any thirst (beer and wine are available).

The doors will be open from 6pm – it’s best to get there early to secure a comfy spot – and the movies start somewhere between 7:30pm and 8:15pm. Chairs and backrests from home are not allowed, but they will be available for hire at the venue.

Not in your neighbourhood? You can also catch The Galileo Open Air Cinema experience at the Hillcrest Quarry, on the Marquee Lawn at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens (Gate 2) or at one of the pop-up events in the Cape Winelands.
