About Galileo Open Air Cinema Meerendal Wine Estate

The evenings from November through to April are arguably South Africa’s finest. They are sometimes cool, sometimes balmy, with the high African sky as a pitch-black canopy that has been glittered with stars. The Cape Winelands, along the south-west coastline of South Africa, are the perfect place in which to immerse yourself in the romance and sublime beauty of Africa.

The Galileo Open Air Cinema and Savanna have partnered up to create a setting in which film-lovers can meet, relax and enjoy fantastic movies in even more wonderful surrounds. With venues throughout Cape Town, this is a cinematic wonderland to remember. They have selected the gorgeous Meerendal Wine Estate in Durbanville as one of the venues, with screenings every fourth Friday of the month.

Meerendal is a 300-year old wine estate and is considered to be one of the finest in South Africa. This makes it a romantic, aesthetically lovely place in which to watch one of the movies with a cold drink, snacks and friends (or a date that is sure to be impressed). Here, movie-watchers can watch awesome flicks like The Notebook, Mama Mia!, 50 First Dates and E.T., depending on the night they wish to come.

You are advised to arrive early to bag your seat. Gates open at 18h00. However, between then and the time that the movie starts (sunset), there is plenty to do, sample and see. A market complements the movie, and offers visitors artisan pizzas, Mexican cuisine, traditional South African favourites, gourmet coffees, ice-cold beers and a variety of Meerendal’s wines. There are also loads of options for little ones.

Seats with blankets and / or backrests are available, ad VIP tickets mean premium seats, snacks and drinks; great for a special occasion. Book your seats and movie online to avoid disappointment and get the most out of your South African summer.
