About Galileo Open Air Cinema at The Palms

The Galileo Open Air Cinema promises a movie-watching experience with more than a little difference. Watch an all-time favourite or a hot release under the romance and magic of the Cape Town night sky. The Palms @ Woodstock, once a bread and biscuit factory, has been transformed into a trendy, quirky venue that is all about the beautiful, delicious and unique. This makes it the ideal venue for one of the Galileo’s screenings.

From November to April, those with a flair for film, others wanting the ultimate in a novel date, or those simply wanting a night out on the town are invited to sit back and relax under the stars to enjoy a movie. The Palms is the venue of choice on the first Friday of every month.

This intimate setting has a glass dome, allowing the stars to glitter above as guests watch one of the popular movies below. The line-up on Galileo’s repertoire comprises more than a hundred films. From romantic comedies to dramas, documentaries to musicals, The Galileo is amply equipped to cater to the cinematic taste buds of just about anyone. Film fans can look forward to the likes of 50 First Dates, The Notebook, Inception, E.T., Avatar, Cocktail, Jaws, Mama Mia, West Side Story and Bridget Jones’ Diary.

The doors open at 18h00 and the movie starts at sunset. This gives guests plenty of time to browse around the market, which is bursting with craft beers and local wines, as well as a massive variety of meals, snacks and sweets. Meet new folks, whether they are Capetonian locals or visitors from abroad, as you mingle with your own friends and family in this chic venue.

Get comfy under the black, speckled night sky as you indulge in the very best of food, fun and fantastic films at the Galileo Open Air Cinema.
