It's An Endless Summer (With 117 Movies) at The Galileo Open Air Cinema

Tickets are now on sale for shows starting 16 October 2019

A Star Is Born at Kirstenbosch Gardens; Rocketman in Battery Park at the V&A Waterfront; Pet Sematary on Halloween, Mary Poppins Returns and 113 more movies at various venues around the city and Winelands. It’s time to get out, sample good food, 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, they will be showing a Bollywood movie (Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham) for the first time, and if you're celebrating your birthday during the week of a screening, you'll get in for free.

A SNUGGLE OPTION AND A WEATHER-FRIENDLY LOCATION
There will be all-new locations, including one in Tokai, and when the weather doesn't cooperate, screenings will move to the funky Zip Zap Dome in the city centre. The V&A Waterfront movie screenings return to Battery Park, and there’ll be a showing every Saturday at various Winelands venues and wine farms.

The “snuggle” and VIP options are back, not to mention the variety of artisanal food and drink stalls, lively music, games (like Jenga and giant checkers), picturesque backdrops and the awesome vibe.

“The Galileo Open Air Cinema is a combination of blockbuster movies, breathtaking views and a vibey market blended together for a sensational outdoor summer activity with friends and family,” says marketing manager Lauren Knapp.
