This Valentine’s Day treat your Sweetheart to an unforgettable Evening of Movie Magic under a Canopy of Stars!

Get ready to swoon over The Galileo Open Air Cinema, in proud association with Santam, this Valentine’s week as they bring a world-class outdoor movie experience to both the mother city and the magnificent Winelands. 

The exquisite Nooitgedacht Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, with its rolling vineyards, mountain vistas and expansive lawns, shaded by century-old oak trees, provides the perfect backdrop to your Valentine’s plans with the screening of romantic comedy-drama ‘Marry Me’, starring Jennifer Lopez and Owen Wilson is bound to bring out the romantic in you.

Arrive early, as the gates open at 5pm and after toasting to the evening with your complimentary cocktail from Lyre’s non-alcoholic spirits and a handmade Belgian chocolate from Geldhof Chocolatier, why not grab a selection of delicious goodies from the artisanal mini-market on-site and enjoy them picnic style on the perfectly manicured lawn.

To aid in the Valentine’s festivities you’ll also be able to enjoy a pre-show serenade by Ezra – featuring live acoustic Jazz, Pop, Reggae, R&B, Blues and Rock music.

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 the ultimate feel-good classics, Bridget Jone’s Diary, Pretty Women and Four Weddings And A Funeral.
  • Musical fans are in for a treat with ‘Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again’ set to get feet tapping at the Vredenheim Hudson’s in Stellenbosch (the perfect movie for catch up with the girls for a post-Galentine’s celebration).
  • Those searching for even more brownie points, are able to further spoil loved ones with the ultimate thoughtful touch, a special note displayed on the big screen. Book your tickets then fill in the form by Monday, 6 February 2023 –
