The Galileo Open Air Cinema

The open air cinema is back with picnics, drive-ins, and the brand new Galileo Royale

 

Every Wednesday to Sunday during December and November, The Galileo is back with an amazing line-up of films, from old classics to new favourites.

These unforgettable cinematic experiences now come in three options: the classic picnics we’ve come to know and love; the lockdown-inspired drive-in option; and the brand new luxe Galileo Royale experience. Plus, you can now rent The Galileo to host your own events that people will talk about for years to come.

THE GALILEO PICNIC IS THE CLASSIC EXPERIENCE

“The Galileo Picnic provides the classic and cherished Galileo experience,” says Director Huenu Solsona, “with a local artisanal market, giant lawn games and social picnic before the start of the movie at sunset.”

Every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, you can settle in with your snacks and enjoy sundowners, before enjoying a blockbuster film under a canopy of stars. Kirstenbosch Gardens and various wine estates across the Cape Winelands host these Galileo Picnic evenings.

GET SPECIAL TREATMENT AT THE GALILEO ROYALE

The Galileo Royale is their newest offering, which takes place every Wednesday at various picturesque venues, including Suikerbossie in Hout Bay, Casa Labia in Muizenberg, Steenberg Wine Estate in Tokai and Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront in Granger Bay.

Expect a live music performance, movie, backrest, blanket, welcome drink, appetiser and popcorn – all included in the ticket price. There are a limited number of spots available for the Galileo Royale experience, so book early.

NOSTALGIC FRIDAY NIGHTS AT THE GALILEO DRIVE-IN

The Galileo Drive-In was borne out of necessity in a time when lockdown rules meant that picnics were out. But it’s been so popular that it’s now a permanent feature, taking place every Friday night, with venues alternating between Constantia and Rondebosch. You’ll reverse your car into a designated bay, set up a cuddle-pad in the boot, and enjoy a family-friendly film. You can pre-order a selection of goodies with your tickets, or bring along your own snacks for a nostalgic night out.

RENT THE GALILEO TO HOST THE MOST EPIC EVENT

If you’re based in Cape Town or the Cape Winelands, you can now host your own Galileo experience in a venue of your choice, complete with the inflatable screen, audio-visual equipment and expert staff. Try the Home Rentals for an intimate celebration with family and friends, the Drive In Rentals for a bigger occasion like a school event, or the Picnic Rentals, perfect for fundraisers or corporate events. Why not pitch it to your boss for the best end of year function ever?
