A Weekend Spent with The Galileo Open Air Cinema

Start your weekend with a little inner-city or wineland movie screening

This year The Galileo Open Air Cinema is taking their experience to new venues and vineyards across the city and the winelands. Fridays and selected Saturdays are reserved for inner-city fun and vineyard romance.

These weekend cinema nights make for a perfect romantic first date, date night with the spouse or even a relaxing evening out with the family. Laze beneath the stars, surrounded by historic vineyards and towering mountain ranges on lush lawns in the Cape Winelands, or enjoy some picturesque venues a little closer to home.

The outdoor cinema will showcase romance films, cinematic classics, action flicks and award-winning, toe-tapping musicals at one of these 17 Winelands destinations on Saturday nights: Lourensford, Warwick, Rustenberg, Uitkyk, Nederburg, Nelson, Vergenoegd, Allée Bleue, Rhebokskloof, Boschendal, Peter Falke, Nooitgedacht, Diamant, Blaauwklippen, Dornier, Plaisir De Merle and Knorhoek.

Every Friday, The Galileo Open Air Cinema settles in for a night at one of the various inner-city venues. The venues include Fedisa on Church Street, the Alphen Hotel, Central Park at Century City, the Castle of Good Hope and Meerendal. While Meerendal may not be ‘inner-city’ as such, it is only 45 minutes out of Cape Town.

Movie-goers can gain entrance to the venues from 6pm on Fridays and 5pm on Saturdays, and grab a bite to eat from the on-site vendors. The list of food stalls will vary according to the venue, and details of who will be present can be found on Thegalileo.co.za under each venue's page; be aware that only cash will be accepted as no card facilities are available.

The movies start just after sunset, between 7:45pm and 8:30pm; so it's best to get there early to secure prime viewing spots. Chairs and backrests from home are not allowed into the movie area, but backrests and blankets are available for rent at the venue if you haven’t already booked them with your ticket.

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), and at the V&A Waterfront. You can also check out Family Sundays at Kelvin Grove

CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS FOR THE 2017-2018 THE GALILEO OPEN-AIR CINEMA IN CAPE TOWN & THE CAPE WINELANDS (WEEKENDS)

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 i 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 in seven days, tickets will be forfeited and no refund will be given. For more information, visit Thegalileo.co.za.
