The Galileo Open Air Cinema is back for another Cape Town Summer! This Galileo season was officially launched with a screening of House of Gucci, backdropped by Kirstenbosch Garden’s starry skyline.
The Galileo Open Air Cinema has become synonymous with the start of summer in Cape Town.
Its screenings offer unique entertainment for both locals and tourists, and an opportunity to take advantage of our beautiful locations and vistas.
The evening begins with a display of hospitality, organisation and all-around charm as the Galileo crew offers warm welcomes, escorts guests to available spots on the lawn and assists with picnic setups.
The main screening area is encircled by refreshment stations adorned with fairy lights. As the sun sets sail and the light dims the warm globes create a magical ambience.
Bring your own picnic or arrive hungry and enjoy a pre-movie meal prepared by local artisanal food vendors. Delicious pizza, juicy burgers, tasty wraps, popcorn and other yummy snacks are available.
Arrive early to secure a spot on the lawn and enjoy a pre-movie picnic with friends and family.

For an affordable rate, comfy backrests and warm blankets are available for hire. Even Summer evenings can be chilly, so hiring a blanket or bringing your own is recommended.
Any screening by the Galileo Open Air Theatre is the perfect setting for romance, an evening with family and friends, birthday celebrations or work socials. Lovely vibes are guaranteed with the help of good music, entertaining games and even a roaming photo booth.
This season’s movie schedule is filled with a variety of new family favourites and cult classics. The locations of the screenings include some of Cape Town’s most magnificent venues.
This season the 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, various Western Cape wine estates will serve as venues for Saturday screenings, showcasing the beautiful backdrops of Stellenbosch, Somerset West, Paarl and Franschhoek.
A screening at the Galileo Open Air Cinema is an evening of delicious food, movie magic and enchanting ambience under a canopy of stars.
