Another truly Capetonian experience that takes great advantage of the beautiful summer weather is the Galileo Open Air Cinema.
It rotates venues through some of the most picturesque parts of Cape Town from Bloemendal Wine Estate in Durbanville (Tuesdays) to Kirstenbosch Gardens in Newlands (Wednesdays), the V&A Waterfront in town (Thursdays) and rotating venues in Cape Town (Fridays) as well as alternate Saturday shows in the Cape Winelands and Family Sundays that take place at Kelvin Grove Club and consist of an outstanding kiddie play area with jumping castles, face painting and games.
Couple the excitement of an outdoor movie that begins at sunset with a great market feel and you’re in for a good time. Local vendors whip up delicious and fresh specialties for you to tuck into while enjoying a wonderful line-up of movies under the stars.
Once again that time of year is upon us and Capetonians and travellers alike will flock to the iconic, pristine and biodiverse venue that is the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens to enjoy local and international music against the most stunning backdrop the mother city has to offer. Armed with picnics brought along, or excellently prepared and pre-ordered from Moyo (021 762 9585) or the Kirstenbosch Tea Room (021 797 4883) a sea of picnic blankets appears and the audience sits back to some great wine and fantastic music. The expertly maintained grounds offer abundant opportunity for kids and adults alike to do some exploring amongst the vast collection of South African flora. There is something magical about hearing a live gig with the music bouncing off the sides of Table Mountain that is hard to be experienced elsewhere. Gates open at 16h00 and concerts go ahead regardless of rain, which is also an adventure not to be missed :-)
