Sit back, relax and take in the festive atmosphere at open-air screenings of The Galileo cinema this holiday.

It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas now, and The Galileo has gone to town for another season of holiday cheer to delight both Mother City and Winelands-based audiences.

With everyone in full holiday mode and children away from school, a carefully curated movie schedule offers something for everyone – with a host of family-friendly screenings available throughout December and January.

For the first time ever the Christmas movie fun extends to the Cape Winelands, where Stellenbosch Vineyards will be transformed into an even more magical backdrop, complete with festive décor, Father Christmas and roaming photo frames to capture special memories.

Be sure to book your tickets for a special screening of the Christmas classic Home Alone, where you’re assured of a happy trip down memory lane and some added Christmas Eve spirit, thanks to the matching hats and candy canes and more on Saturday 24 December.

The festivities continue into the main event planned for Christmas Day. Bound to have everyone flocking to their favourite venue, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, the full Christmas festivities await there too.

This one is an animation comedy adventure, catering for the youngest and most enthusiastic supporters of Christmas as they enjoy a screening of Arthur Christmas under a canopy of stars on the perfect summer’s evening.

Tickets, at R250 per person, include movie entry, festive-themed decor, a backrest, blanket, candy cane and Christmas hat. The doors open at 17:00 and the movie starts at 20:30.

Arrive hungry and enjoy a pre-movie picnic from The Galileo’s magnificent on-site mini-market, which features goods from local artisans – from mouth-watering pizzas to juicy burgers, wraps, popcorn, barista coffee, sweet treats and award-winning wines at select venues.
