Cape Town’s favourite outdoor cinema welcomes movie goers back to The Galileo Open Air Cinema for a 10th season this summer. Thursdays and Sundays are reserved for the much-loved picnic movies in Kirstenbosch Garden.

On Thursdays and Sundays at 6 pm, you can find the beloved outdoor cinema set-up at the magnificent Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, the movie starts when the sun sets. With breath-taking views from the foot of Table Mountain and an enchanting garden experience, with blossoming flowers and greenery surrounding you.

DID YOU KNOW? Our spot at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is conveniently completely sheltered from the wind 🤩 So, don’t let the Cape Doctor keep you from an awesome movie experience at this wonderful venue!

More than just a movie experience, The Galileo Picnic offers an opportunity to soak up the balmy summer atmosphere with vibey music, beautiful views and more! 

Enjoy a majestic sunset picnic or giant lawn games with your loved ones on the grass before the movie starts. The aromas from the mini-market of delicious artisanal food options and beverages on location will have your tastebuds tickled.

There is no one way to explore all of the Cape Town Big 6, and much of what makes each of them so special is the variety of things to see and do at each. So if possible, take your time to explore each of the city’s most visited tourist attractions in as much depth as possible – as any local will tell you, you can spend a lifetime at each of the Big 6 and still not tire of them. Find the 3 and 4 day itineraries and tips here.
