Cape Town’s summer staple and much-loved outdoor movie experience, The Galileo Open Air Cinema, is back! Offering locals and visitors from near and far popular films screened under the stars at venues across Cape Town and the Winelands, The Galileo offers an excellent evening out for film buffs and outdoor enthusiasts alike. Running Tues to Fri and selected Saturdays & Sundays with doors opening at 6pm on weekdays, 5pm on Saturdays and 4pm on Sundays and the movie starts as soon as it’s dark. Arrive early, find your spot on the lawn and enjoy an evening of artisanal food and drinks, games, lively music and an overall great vibe.
Popular venues Kirstenbosch Gardens and the V&A Waterfront remain as weeknight hosts, with new spot on the block Bloemendal Wine Estate in Durbanville taking up the Tuesday night slot. Friday nights work on rotation – moving between Meerendal Wine Estate, Fedisa Rooftop, Central Park in Century City, The Castle of Good Hope and The Alphen Boutique Hotel. If getting out of the city (with a glass of vino in hand) sounds appealing, you can catch Saturday screenings at select wine estates in Paarl, Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Somerset West. You’re spoilt for choice this year – we recommend that you visit them all.
