Swoonworthy films with The Galileo this Valentine’s Week!

Words: Crush

Get ready to swoon under the stars this Valentine’s Day. In proud association with Santam, The Galileo Open Air Cinema brings a world-class outdoor movie experience to both the Mother City and the magnificent Winelands, this Valentine’s week.

Romantic comedy-drama ‘Marry Me’, starring Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson, will be screening, so you’re bound to have a delightful evening with your beau.

Valentine’s Day at The Galileo

The exquisite Nooitgedacht Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, with its expansive lawns and mountain vistas, provides the perfect backdrop to your Valentine’s plans.

Entertainment for the evening includes a pre-show serenade by artist, Ezra – featuring live acoustic Jazz, Pop, Reggae, R&B, Blues and Rock music.

Arrive early to secure a comfortable spot – the gates open as soon as 17h00. After toasting to the evening with your complimentary cocktail from Lyre’s Non-Alcoholic Spirits and a handmade Belgian chocolate from Geldhof Chocolatier, grab delicious goodies from the on-site artisanal mini-market and enjoy them picnic-style on the perfectly manicured lawn.

There’s Something for Everyone…

If you’re unable to get to the Winelands or celebrate on the actual day, fear not! The Galileo Open Air Cinema has catered to all, with a week-long celebration of all things heart-themed and delightfully sentimental.

Weekly movie magic at everyone’s favourite venue, Kirstenbosch Garden, aims to please with feel-good classics like Bridget Jones’s Diary, Pretty Women and Four Weddings and a Funeral. Musical fans are set to get feet tapping at the Vredenheim Hudson’s in Stellenbosch, with a screening of Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again – the perfect movie for a post-Galentine’s celebration.

In the spirit of spreading the love far and wide, this season, your ticket can contribute towards bettering the lives of others, with a R 5 donation to the ‘StreetSmart’ cause – optional but encouraged and sincerely appreciated.

Whether you’re trying to impress a crush or show appreciation to your long-term partner, The Galileo Valentine’s Day experience will send Cupid’s arrows your way. Steal a smooch and cuddle up close to enjoy a magical sunset, signalling the start of the movie to follow.
