Get Comfy at Kirstenbosch Movie Nights on Wednesdays

Great films, fabulous scenery, delicious food and cosy seats – look forward to a night of romance and entertainment

The perfect mid-week stress reliever is sitting under a canopy of stars at the picturesque Kirstenbosch Gardens, while enjoying blockbusters such as The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Mrs Doubtfire or Get Out  – and the best news is that the ticket prices haven’t changed.

Every Wednesday, film-lovers get the chance to laze on the lush lawns of Cape Town’s oldest botanical garden with popcorn, picnic baskets and a consistent dose of cult classics, rom-coms and some award-winning dramas. 




What’s more, if you’re in too much of a rush to pack a picnic box, the open-air cinema area boasts a wide array of gourmet food and drink vendors peddling yummy treats and, of course, popcorn – as no movie is complete without it.

There are also interactive games and music to keep you and the family entertained before the shows start. Doors open at 6pm, and the movies start after sunset.

On Thursdays and Fridays, The Galileo Open Air Cinema rotates between the Waterfront’s all-new Battery Park, Century City, Kenilworth Racecourse, Rustenburg Girls High School and more. From Beauty and the Beast to Braveheart, see all The Galileo Open Air Cinema Thursday and Friday movies.
