To add to the summer events at Kirstenbosch, Galileo will bring you Open Air Cinema in the beautiful Kirstenbosch gardens, on the lawns, under the stars, who could wish for more? Just like the old Drive-In movies except here you will walk in. There will be food stalls with local food vendors who will offer fresh, regional produce to tantalise all taste buds. From sandwiches to smoothies, cupcakes and coffee. Comfortable zen chairs and blankets are available for hire for the evening too (while stocks last) or bring your own.

Entry into Kirstenbosch (Gate 2) on these evenings will be free after 17:00hrs. The movies will be starting from the 21st November 2012 on Wednesday evenings, should it rain then it will be moved out to the Thursday and should it rain on this day too then you will be refunded. Ticket sales open two weeks before each show. Their thinking on the ticket prices is unique but we think very fair. Tickets can be bought here Tickets R10.00 cheaper if you buy online.

Looking at the schedule it looks as if there is something for everyone including the young, the old and everyone in between. Each week a movie or documentary from different, but recurring film genre:
1st week of the month: Documentaries
2nd week of the month: Best Foreign
3rd week of the month: Adventure Sports
4th week of the month: All-Time Classics
