COVID-friendly Movie Magic at the Galileo Open Air Cinema
Calling all Capetonians! The wildly popular Galileo Open Air Cinema is finally back in action with their new COVID-friendly movie schedule and we couldn’t be more exited! In Cape Town, The Galileo is synonymous with summertime happiness, bringing movie magic to majestic venues across Cape Town, paired with delicious food and impeccable views. While their beloved Picnic screenings have been suspended until further notice due to COVID-19 and government regulations, fear not, The Galileo has put together incredible, safe, and fun alternatives for everyone to enjoy – Ensuring you get to experience the same unique outdoor movie experience under the Mother City moonlight and canopy of stars.
Whether you’re young or young at heart, the Galileo Open Air Cinema invites you to enjoy all the 2021 summer COVID-friendly movie magic. Here is what you can expect from The Galileo this summer season.
The Galileo Royale
The Galileo Royale is the brand-new spin-off to the popular Galileo Open Air Cinema screenings and takes place every Wednesday until the end of April 2021. The Galileo Royale provides guests with an exclusive and intimate VIP themed movie experience where they have the opportunity to lap up the luxury and royal treatment with a one-hour live music performance, movie under the stars, backrest, blanket, welcome drink, appetiser, and popcorn – all included in the ticket price.
This intimate affair only caters for a limited number of movie-goers so pre-booking is essential. The spectacular string of venues for the new and exclusive Galileo Royale screenings includes The Cellars-Hohenort Hotel, Suikerbossie, Casa Labia and the Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront. If you were a fan of The Galileo’s Picnic screenings then this will certainly be your new go-to Cape Town summer experience.
The Galileo Drive In
The Galileo Open Air Cinema is making old school cool again with its awesome drive-in experience in the form of The Galileo Drive-In. The Galileo Drive-In invites you to enjoy some of your favourite movie classics and cinematic delights on the big screen from the comfort of your own car. The Galileo Drive In will take place each week from Friday to Sunday with a range of blockbuster hits and family favourites. Park backwards, get your boot set-up with tons of pillows and blankets, sit back, relax, and cuddle up with your loved ones as you enjoy a unique outdoor movie experience under the stars.
You can pre-order a selection of delicious snacks and goodies with your tickets or bring along your favourite movie snacks for a nostalgic night out – the choice is yours! This retro movie experience takes place across the southern & northern suburbs of Cape Town and will be available throughout winter as well.
This safe and fun Galileo Drive-In cinematic experience is the best COVID-friendly outdoor experience for families, friends, and couples to enjoy together.
