It’s sure starting to feel a lot like Christmas in the mother city 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 newly out of school, a carefully-curated movie schedule offers something for everyone – with a host of family-friendly screenings also available throughout December and January months.
For the first time ever, the Christmas movie fun extends to the 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 a 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.
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 to 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. A recipe for true Christmas happiness!
Tickets are R250 per person. Included in your ticket price is: movie entry, festive-themed decor, a backrest, a blanket, a candy cane and a Christmas hat.
Doors open at 5pm and the movie starts at 8:30pm.
Arrive hungry and enjoy a pre-movie picnic from The Galileo’s magnificent on-site mini-market. Support local artisans with varied tasty dinner treats on offer, from mouth-watering pizzas to juicy burgers, wraps, popcorn, barista coffee and sweet treats. Savour it all and enjoy with award-winning wines available at select wine estate venues.
