Sunday night movies at Kirstenbosch Gardens

End off the weekend with a relaxing movie at The Galileo Open Air Cinema

Nothing says Sunday night like a meal and a movie, only this time it's way more atmospheric because The Galileo Open Air Cinema screens at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, and there are food stalls, too, so supper is sorted. 

 

THE REAL SUNDAY PICNIC EXPERIENCE

Gather the gang and head to Kirstenbosch, in Newlands, to watch your favourite movie in the great outdoors. Featuring classics such as My Big Fat Greek Wedding and newer movies like Rocketman, The Galileo's line-up is extensive so you'll find something, whichever genre you prefer.

THERE WILL BE FOOD AND DRINKS ON SALE, TOO

Arrive early so you can explore the various food and drink vendors that will be on site. You’ll find everything from juicy chicken shawarmas, cheesy pizza and, of course, popcorn and other snacks traditionally found at the movies. Also, you'll be able to buy alcoholic drinks.
