The Galileo Open Air Cinema Friday Movie Nights

Get your dose of classics, dramas, action movies and more at these outdoor summertime showings

From Bohemian Rhapsody to Dirty Dancing – film fanatics get to sit back, relax and enjoy killer movies every Friday night at various venues, rotating between the Waterfront’s Battery Park, Century City, Meerendal Wine Estate and Steenberg Farm in Tokai. Plus, there is a special Valentine’s Day screening of About Time.

Throw in popcorn, picnics (and of course, the stunning locations), and the screenings definitely trump showings in a regular four-walled theatre.

Doors open from 6pm – it’s best to get there early to secure a comfy spot – and the movies start after sunset.

Every Wednesday and Thursday, The Galileo Open Air Cinema returns to Kirstenbosch, one of the quintessential Cape Town summer experiences. See the full The Galileo Open Air Cinema Wednesday and Thursday movie line-up at Kirstenbosch Gardens.

Saturday nights are for discovering exciting new places as the experience travels to various wine farms throughout the season. See the full list of The Galileo Open Air Cinema Winelands venues and movies.

Family Sundays are a select series of Sunday screenings happening over the school holidays at Kelvin Grove in Newlands. See all The Galileo Open Air Cinema movies at the Family Sunday screenings. Also check out The Galileo Open Air Cinema’s entire line-up for Cape Town
