Get Comfy at Kirstenbosch Movie Nights on Wednesdays and Thursdays

Great films, fabulous scenery, delicious food and cosy seats – look forward to a night of romance and entertainment

The perfect mid-week stress reliever is sitting under a canopy of stars at the picturesque Kirstenbosch Gardens, while enjoying blockbusters such as The Holiday, Pretty Woman or The Breakfast Club. Plus, there is a special Halloween screening of Pet Sematary (2019) as well as a special Christmas screening of How The Grinch Stole Christmas.

Every Wednesday and Thursday, film-lovers get the chance to laze on the lush lawns of Cape Town’s oldest botanical garden with popcorn, picnic baskets and a consistent dose of cult classics, rom-coms and some award-winning dramas. 




What’s more, if you’re in too much of a rush to pack a picnic box, the open-air cinema area boasts a wide array of gourmet food and drink vendors peddling yummy treats and, of course, popcorn – as no movie is complete without it.

There are also interactive games and music to keep you and the family entertained before the shows start. Doors open at 6pm, and the movies start after sunset.

OTHER VENUES FOR 2019/20
On Fridays, The Galileo Open Air Cinema rotates between the Waterfront’s Battery Park, Century City, Meerendal Wine Estate and Steenberg Farm in Tokai. From The Notebook to Rocketman, see all The Galileo Open Air Cinema Friday movies.
