Revel in the Magic of Family-Friendly Movies this Summer

The Galileo Open Air Cinema is back for its 8th season, bringing movie magic to some of the Mother City’s most enchanting locations. The unique summer activity offers the perfect setting for an incredible family bonding date night under the stars.

Apart from their regular screenings of rom-coms and musicals, The Galileo offers an array of beloved family-friendly films throughout the summer, from golden classics like The Sound Of Music and E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial to modern day hit animations like Trolls and Moana. The entertainment doesn’t stop there – vibey music, interactive games and an on-site mini-market serving up delicious food and snacks add to the unique bucketlist experience. Relax on the luscious lawn with a glass of wine while the little ones run wild or enjoy a giant game of jenga for a little inter-family competition. Once tummies are full and fun has been had by all, snuggle up for a beautiful sunset and the much-anticipated movie.

Furthermore, Sunday movie-goers at Kelvin Grove Club in Newlands will be treated to an additional element of fun with face-painters, jumping castles and child-minders with a host of activities and games set to keep the kiddies thoroughly entertained and a way to exert all that extra energy before settling down for the film.

The Galileo Open Air Cinema provides an exciting solution for family outings that everyone will love, so reserve your tickets today and make time together a priority. Bookings at
