by Media Xpose

Nothing signals the start of summer quite like The Galileo Open Air Cinema. This season, The Galileo Open Air Cinema is proudly sponsored by Santam-, and will showcase a brand new season of cinematic delights. The recipe remains perfected for sunset viewings all throughout Cape Town’s partner venues and into the magnificent Cape Winelands, where there’s bound to be a show popping up near you. 

The next few months are jam-packed with over 110 movie screenings showcasing a series of blockbuster hits, from family favourites to heart-warming romcoms, upbeat comedies, adored musicals – promising something on offer for every movie lover!  

Set in some of most picturesque and exclusive settings across the Western Cape, the magnificent wine estates chosen make for all the more reason to arrive early, cuddle up close and enjoy some estate wines while you tick one of the many must-visit vineyards off the seemingly-never ending list across Stellenbosch, Somerset West, Paarl and Franschhoek. 

For those who have not yet experienced a Saturday sunset screening, arrive as the gates open at 5pm to take full advantage of the breathtaking mountain vistas, award-winning wines on offer and the delectable on-site artisanal food market. Get comfy as you find a spot on the manicured lawns – the perfect backdrop for an evening picnic of pre-movie al fresco dining with loved ones.

For the first time ever, The Galileo will also be hosting a festive family show in Stellenbosch for Christmas Eve celebrations! Apt that the season then concludes with a final screening, set up at the foot of the Helderberg mountains on Lourensford Estate on 29 April 2023. 

More than just a movie experience, The Galileo offers an opportunity to soak up the balmy summer atmosphere and unrivaled surroundings with vibey music, beautiful views and more! Consider your date nights, family weekend activities, birthday bashes and year-end festivities sorted this summer season.
