March movie magic at the Galileo Open Air Cinema


THE Galileo Open Air Cinema has entered the final weeks of its summer season, and the enchanting movie magic continues to captivate Capetonian audiences. In partnership with Nedbank Private Wealth, the 12th season nears its end, promising an extraordinary cinematic experience featuring beloved classics and exciting new releases set against the stunning landscapes of Cape Town and the Cape winelands.

Kicking off the Easter holidays on 20 March at Kirstenbosch Garden, The NeverEnding Story invites families for a magical outing as the school holidays unfold. The Galileo offers the perfect recipe for keeping children busy and entertained by combining the outdoors and beloved age-appropriate flicks. The always-hilarious Pitch Perfect and the new addition of Shrek 2 on Easter Sunday at Battery Park at the V&A Waterfront ensures the holiday itinerary has a few highlights for the little ones.

Aptly timed with the noteworthy celebration of the International Day of Forests, The Lorax, a family-friendly adaptation of Dr Seuss’s timeless tale, encourages audiences to immerse themselves in the marvels of nature with the adventures of a boy on a quest to win the heart of his crush.

Catering specifically to fans of the blockbuster biggies, Throwback Thursday presents an array of timeless classics throughout the month with old-time favourites like Lord of the Rings, The Godfather, and Harry Potter.

Matthew Schulz, who runs the Galileo, shares his excitement: “The upcoming school holidays are a great time for families to experience the Galileo for the first time or as returning guests. We try to foster an open, fun, and safe environment for all our guests, where children and parents alike can make new friends and relax outdoors. With one of our signature special screenings on Good Friday and another show on Easter Sunday, March promises a diverse range of entertainment for all. As we get set for the final stretch of our summer season, it’s a joy to welcome so many families, friend groups and dates as they create magical moments under the stars.”

The Galileo Open Air Cinema’s last few weeks of summer movie magic are not to be missed. Book your tickets early to secure your spot under a ceiling of stars. For more information, movie schedules, and special deals, visit The Galileo Open Air Cinema’s website.
