The Galileo

When thinking of fun activities to do in Cape Town, a must during the summer months is The Galileo Open Air Cinema. It is a fun activity for all ages, and is a way to enjoy various locations at night. 

Originally located at the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, although in recent years it has expanded to the V&A Waterfront, and Hillcrest in Durbanville, The Galileo is a one-of-a-kind experience. They have a variety of movies on their summer program, and for an entry level price of R70, you get to watch an old favourite alongside fellow movie appreciators under the stars. Their program is vast, from Forrest Gump, to Notting Hill, to Dirty Dancing, to Edward Scissorhands, there is definitely something there for everyone. 

Another wonderful feature is the many food stalls at the back, allowing you to purchase your movie snacks without any preplanning. But remember the movies do sell-out, so remember to pre-book on

So bring your wallets, blankets, and movie-loving friends along to this wonderful addition to Cape Town's already vast list of attractions.
