The Galileo is back for a star-studded summer line up!

Nothing signals the arrival of summer quite like The Galileo Open Air Cinema, Cape Town’s first and finest outdoor movie experience. 

The recipe is beautifully simple; great movies, a festive atmosphere and a food market of local gourmet goodness served ‘al fresco’ under a canopy of stars. 

This season The Galileo will be proudly sponsored by Santam and will kick off on the 31st of October 2022 with their iconic Halloween screening. The Galileo’s eleventh season of outdoor movie magic will run until the 29th of April 2023 and will feature rom coms, cult classics, family favourites and ‘Golden Oldies’ – ensuring all tastes are catered to. 

This season, Galileo guests will be thrilled to hear that weekly shows will be screened at the beloved ‘Kirstenbosch Garden’, select Fridays hosted at Century City’s ‘Central Park’ and a brand new venue, the iconic ‘Six Gun Grill Newlands Cricket Stadium’ for selected Sundays. Perfectly primed for weekend Winelands adventures, the rotating wine estate venues remain firmly in place for Saturday screenings, showcasing the beautiful backdrops of Stellenbosch, Somerset West, Paarl and Franschhoek.

The Galileo is the ideal setting for an evening with family, friends, work socials, date nights and birthday celebrations. Better yet, this season all are encouraged to come for FREE during their birthday week (excluding special shows). Pensioners are also catered to, with special savings to ensure there’s no reason to stay home this summer. 

Couples seeking something extra special can look out for the newly-launched VVIP ticket that ensures the best seats in the house, luxurious décor, a bespoke picnic platter for two, a snack combo and a bottle of wine.

Christmas Eve: Home Alone, Stellenbosch Vineyards
