The Galileo Open Air Cinema... it's alive, it's ALIVE


This year's Galileo Open Air Cinema season kicked off with a sold out Halloween screening of A Nightmare on Elm Street. While Freddy Krueger got the ball rolling, the Galileo's vibe is exemplified by About Time, the film they screened at Kirstenbosch, by renowned British director, Richard Curtis. About Time has its own outdoor screening scene and there's even lawn croquet, something the Galileo has started this year along with giant Jenga and boulle. About Time is heartwarming, life-affirming, rewatchable, all about love, has a special focus on family and is a real crowd pleaser... traits that underline what the Galileo's geared towards.

Their 2016/2017 film selection of popular crowd-pleasers are films that you want to watch again and the organisers have done their research, picking the best of the best from similar outdoor film events around the world. They've added the Castle of Good Hope as a new Friday venue, which should enthrall moviegoers and the screening line up is jam-packed old favourites as well as modern classics like Boyhood and Into the Wild. The gourmet food market has returned with delicious oven-baked pizza, fire-grilled nachos and stacked burgers. This year they've got a Seattle Coffee Co. mobile barista into the mix, which will appeal to coffee junkies.

Before the screening it's important to get a good spot before the hordes descend, unless you booked a VIP package, which gets you reserved seating. You may wait about an hour or more before the screening starts, during which time you can answer trivia questions on the big screen, play some lawn games or picnic with friends at one of their picturesque venues. It's a good idea to take a cushion, a warm jacket and recommended that you rent a back rest for maximum comfort.
