NO ROYALE. Galileo has a new 2022/23 VVIP experience. See schedule








A limited VIP experience at gorgeous venues around Cape Town, where you get to watch movies outdoors, under the stars. Arrive early to order food or have a cocktail and canapes while the sun sets.

The luxury version of The Galileo Open Air Cinema, screening movies from 3 November – 6 April 2022, offers only six exclusive experiences every first Wednesday of the month. So it's best to book early (see movie schedule below). 

Choose between the Radisson Blu, the 5-star seaside hotel located at the V&A Waterfront and overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with Robben Island in the distance, or Beau Constantia, in some of Constantia's prettiest winelands.

Early arrivals get to choose their perfect spot and order a meal from a selected menu at the premium restaurants. Pick anything from burgers and wraps to cheese and charcuterie platters. 

The welcome canape, like the caramalized red onion and brie tartlets or rustic rye baguette with beef carpaccio and caramelized beetroot, is also exclusive to the Royale experience. There's also a bar and cafe, serving hot and cold beverages.
