Move over Pinotage – there’s another reason to visit the Winelands this summer. Serving up its popular blend of movies, delicious food and star-struck entertainment, The Galileo Open Air Cinema is back. Gather your friends, family or new beau and catch them on select Saturdays at handpicked wine estates in Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschhoek and Somerset West.
Catering for all tastes and occasions, with movies from La La Land and The Notebook to The Jungle Book, Amelié and old time favourite Mamma Mia, doors open at 5pm and the movie starts as soon as it’s dark. Arrive early to savour the full-bodied experience – mountain views, magical sunsets and star-studded skies. You’ll have more than enough reasons to charge your glass and toast the night away.
With lawn games to entertain the children – and the child in you – plus wine tasting and artisanal food to keep palates satisfied before the movie starts, the Wineland events are a not to be missed experience for locals and tourists alike. Whether you want to make a toast, bubbles in hand, or sip on a more family-friendly varietal, there’s sure to be no sour grapes this season.
Screened weekly at venues around town and in the winelands on select Saturdays – visit www.thegalileo.co.za to book tickets and to view this season’s line-up. Ticket prices: From R89 to R175.
