The Galileo Open Air Cinema is back, bringing family movie magic to some of the Mother City’s most enchanting outdoor locations.

This 'summer staple' activity offers the perfect way to spend an evening with the family whilst being outdoors. Planned with the little ones in mind, The Galileo Open Air Cinema will be hosting family-friendly flicks under the stars throughout their summer season.

Now celebrating their 10th year as Cape Town’s most-beloved open-air cinema, The Galileo has gone to town this summer season with venues to delight Mother City audiences. From Battery Park at the V&A Waterfront, Central Park in Century City, Meerendal Wine Estate, a host of Winelands venues on Saturdays and of course the all-time favourite, Kirstenbosch Gardens - there’s guaranteed to be some outdoor movie magic popping up at an outdoor venue near you.

Choose from Disney classics like 'Aladdin' and ‘Soul’, to 'Raya And The Last Dragon' and 'Luca', as well as the Christmas special screening of 'Home Alone' and Boxing Day's 'Elf'. Not only will these child-friendly movies be screened throughout the season and specifically within the December and March holidays, but there’s also a whole host of activities on offer to ensure that the little ones are entertained well before the movie begins; relax on the luscious lawns with a picnic or enjoy a giant game of Jenga or swing-ball for a little inter-family competition. The Galileo has got you covered for a fun and safe family night out and is also a great option for a safe and fun kiddies birthday party!

While the kids burn off some energy before the movie begins, treat yourself to some local artisanal goodness from the food and drink mini-market on-site adding to the unique bucket-list experience. Once tummies are full and fun has been had by all, snuggle up for a beautiful sunset and the much-anticipated movie under a canopy of stars.

The Galileo Open Air Cinema provides an exciting family-friendly outing like no other, that’s bound to excite kids and parents alike and promises a night of memories to last forever. Make family-time a priority this summer and reserve your tickets today at
