Watching movies just won’t be the same after you’ve experienced the awesomeness of watching a movie under a starry sky with The Galileo Open Air Cinema.
If you haven’t yet given it a try, what are you waiting for? And for those who have been & loved it, you better hurry up cause there’s just about one more week left in their current cinema season.
The Galileo Cinema takes place across 3 venue here in Cape Town (I’ve already been to the first two, will have to hit up the last one to make it a full hat trick):
- Tuesday nights: Hillcrest Quarry in Durbanville (On the Hillcrest Wine Estate)
- Wednesday nights: Kirstenbosch Gardens in Newlands
- Thursday nights: V&A Waterfront, Croquet Lawn (above Ulundi Parking)
The movies start at 19:30 sharp, but gates open at 18:00 so you can get there a bit earlier to grab a good spot and get yourself something to eat & drink. (There are different food & drink stands available at each venue – check out the venue links above for all the info on these.)
So what’s still on the schedule?
- Wed, 16 Apr: Life of Brian (Kirstenbosch)
- Thu, 17 Apr: The Big Lebowski (V&A)
- Tue, 22 Apr: Braveheart (Hillcrest Quarry)
- Wed, 23 Apr: Slumdog Millionaire (Kirstenbosch)
- Thu, 24 Apr: American Beauty (V&A)
Tickets range from R70 – R95:
- R70 for entry only
- R79 for entry + blanket
- R88 for entry + chair
- R95 for entry + chair + blanket.
– I highly recommend going for the chair option, it makes things way more comfy. Plus you can’t bring in your own chair or backrests, only blankets/cushions.
- Tickets are available from Webtickets over here.
Other important things to take note of:
- In the case of heavy rain or strong wind the show will be cancelled. You will receive an e-mail and sms to confirm the cancellation and will be refunded by 17:00 the following day.
- No pets allowed.
- No refunds or exchanges.
- Oh and make sure you dress warmly, even though our days might still be hot, it gets quite chilly at night.
