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 2017 to April 2018.

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 night 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 buy your own treats. This year The Galieo is debuting their picnic box at R140/p which include an Osumo wrap, chocolate, chips, popcorn, juice and an apple. If you think juice might not quench that thirst, the on site bar will be on hand with wine and beer.

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 Bloemendal Wine Estate, on the Marquee Lawn at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens (Gate 2), at one of the pop-up events in the Cape Winelands and selected venues in the city. You can also check out Family Sundays at Kelvin Grove

CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS FOR THE 2017-2018 GALILEO OPEN-AIR CINEMA AT V&A WATERFRONT (THURSDAYS)

Since the event takes place outdoors at the mercy of the Cape’s fickle weather, patrons are urged to dress appropriately and be prepared for all scenarios. The event will not be cancelled if there is only a light drizzle, but it will be called off should there be rain or very strong winds. 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 receive an 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 within seven days, tickets will be forfeited and no refund will be given. For more information, visit Thegalileo.co.za.
