EXPLORE THIS BOTANICAL GARDEN BEFORE SCREENING

The Galileo screening for summer 2022/23 runs from 31 October 2022 until 29  April 2023, and every Wednesday to Friday screens at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden. There will be select Fridays hosted at Century City’s Central Park. See the full Kirstenbosch schedule below, and book your ticket on webtickets.co.za/galileo.

Gather the gang for a picnic and a movie at this world-famous botanical garden in Newlands. This year’s Kirstenbosch selection has something for everyone with movies like Harry Potter and The Sorcerers Stone, House of Gucci and Die Hard. The Galileo's line-up is extensive, so you'll find something, whichever genre you prefer.

PICNIC UNDER THE STARS AT THE GALILEO

You can order food from the stalls at the venue and picnic while watching your movie. Order pizzas, burgers or fresh shawarmas. You can even order drinks, plus there’s coffee, tea and cold drinks, and, of course, movie essentials like popcorn. If you prefer, you can bring your own picnic.


Halaal and vegetarian options are available. Image: The Galileo Open Air Cinema (Photo by @retroyspective)
