Unique, special and big cinemas in Cape Town and surrounds

It's movie time in Cape Town and surrounds

Last Updated: 14 November 2018

Movies are considered an important art form and a source of popular entertainment in Cape Town. They've made us laugh and cry but their visual element evokes a universal understanding. Cape Town is abundant with art house classics, rip roaring comedies and the latest action adventure movies shown at a broad spectrum of venues from exclusive to classic. We've selected the cream of the big screen in Cape Town and Surrounds.

1. The Galileo Open Air Cinema
Snuggle up to a loved one while watching your favourite movie underneath the Capetonian sky. The Galileo Open Air Cinema is set in the middle of sprawling lawns in various locations across the city and is the perfect warm summer night experience. The scenic cinema showcases contemporary classics almost every night of the week. The venues include Kirstenbosch, the new Battery Park at the V&A Waterfront and the Cape Winelands plus the inner city. Families can also look forward to a children-friendly movie at the Kelvin Grove Club for Family Sundays during the December school holidays.
