All The Movie Magic at The Galileo Open Air Cinema

Snuggle up to a loved one as you watch love stories unfold like in Notting Hill, or have a giggle at classic comedies like Mrs Doubtfire – all while under a starry Capetonian sky

It’s romantic. It’s feel-good. A must-do activity. Get your tickets. November 2018 to April 2019 line-up:

Top Gun, Black Panther, Ready Player One, Beauty and the Beast and 110 more. At 37 venues around the city and Winelands. It’s time to get out, sample good food and stretch out on the lawn and experience the unique union of cinema and nature almost every night of the week with The Galileo Open Air Cinema.

Plus: All-new locations including one in Hout Bay and Rustenburg Girls’ High. The V&A Waterfront movie screenings place at the brand new Battery Park, and there’ll be a showing every Saturday at various Winelands venues and wine farms.

The good news is that the ticket prices stay unchanged from last year, and, of course, the “snuggle” and VIP options are back. Not to mention the variety of food and drink stalls and the awesome The Galileo Open Air Cinema vibe.
