Every Thursday, from November to April, the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town’s Foreshore will have even more on offer than usual. On this evening, as the summer African sun sinks below the horizon, visitors can now enjoy top-notch movies beneath a starry ceiling. The Galileo Open Air Cinema is a hot addition to any mid-week itinerary this season.
As the vision of Savanna, this event is all about glitzy entertainment and comfort with liberal lashings of something really special and memorable. Here, surrounded by Table Mountain, the shopping Mecca of the Waterfront, the looming face of Signal Hill and the dazzle of the Cape Eye, viewers get to combine all of the fun of the Mother City with some of its best attractions.
The line-up of The Galileo Open Air Cinema includes a variety (over 100, in fact) of cult classics, timeless romances, modern comedies, and everything in-between. There truly is a bit for just about everyone, making it the ideal choice for friends and families wanting to do something a little different, or those organising the ultimate romantic date.
Gates open at 18h00 for those wanting to arrive early to secure a good seat. Come from a day of shopping fun for a browse around the market, where delicious food and beverages are on offer – including craft beers, local wines, gourmet burgers and wraps, tasty Mexican meals, and irresistible sweets. The market also offers live music performances, and games for everyone to enjoy.
There is a variety of ticket options; ranging from a basic entry to packages that include a blanket and / or a chair back. The VIP option comes with all of the bells and whistles; including snacks and a crisp Savanna Cider.
Tickets are available online but book early to avoid disappointment.
