Just In: New Line-Up at The Galileo Open Air Cinema

From Dirty Dancing to Doctor Strange – here's the new schedule, complete with the 'snuggle' option and best of all, the prices stay the same as last year.

It’s romantic. It’s feel-good. It’s different. Get your tickets. October 2018 to April 2019 line-up:

Admittedly, it doesn’t truly do the summertime staple justice. But then again, unless you’ve actually stretched out under the stars in one of the outdoor cinema’s breathtaking spaces and experienced the drive-in theatre-type nostalgia, the flush of a beautiful Cape Town summer night and that merry glow that comes with picnicking with loved ones, friends and family, an incredible experience is just waiting to be discovered.

WATCH: WHAT TO EXPECT AT THE GALILEO OPEN AIR CINEMA

Luckily for both those who’ve been before and those who’ve yet to hit the one-of-a-kind theatres, the event series is returning for another year as a slightly re-mastered version of itself and with some ‘special effects’ to boot.

There are a host of venues including Kirstenbosch Gardens, Battery Park at the V& A Waterfront, various wine farms, and more. Please scroll down for the complete lin-up and some trailers.

What’s more, beer, wine and fresh popcorn will be on sale at every event, along with the artisan fare conjured up by the members of The Galileo mini-market. So it’s not actually necessary to lug the cooler boxes or pack the cumbersome picnic basket at all – unless, of course, that’s what floats your boat.

The Galileo is all about providing a special, fun experience for the whole family. During the school holidays, make sure you don’t miss out on the magical movie line-up for little ones. Please see the table above and note where the PG rating is listed. There’s a super screening happening almost every night of the week at various venues around the Mother. There’ll be a food and drinks market, games, live music and more to keep the family entertained until the sun sets and the movie begins.

CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS FOR THE 2018-2019 GALILEO OPEN-AIR CINEMA 

Since the event takes place outdoors at the mercy of the Cape’s 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 it 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 or choose another movie and date.

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.
