Movie Binging: The Galileo Open Air Cinema and Uber Eats have you Covered!

The Galileo Open Air Cinema,  Cape Town, 17 October 2018 – 21 April 2019

For those of you in Cape Town, you’ll definitely want to watch some movie classics in an outdoor cinema setting.

This summer season, they’re showcasing great movies to suit all tastes, a festive food market of local gourmet goodness and the option to pack your own picnic to enjoy ‘al fresco’. What could be better than the chance of spending time in the beautiful outdoors, under a ceiling of stars, falling in love all over again with your favourite flicks and the sheer beauty of the Mother City?

There are a host of new venues and movies on offer with no price increases. Take your pick from various regular venues, from Kirstenbosch Gardens to Central Park in Century City, as well as brand new partner venues at Glenellen Farm, Kenilworth Racecourse, Rustenburg Girls’ High School, Willowbridge Mall and a sensational new spot at the V&A Waterfront’s Battery Park. Your favourite summer staple is now also coming to you every Saturday at a different wine estate across the gorgeous Cape Winelands, which leaves zero excuse to stay home on the weekends.   

Movies start when the light fades and if it’s not quite warm enough, you can grab one of their blankets and backrests and cuddle up. This season, The Galileo has you covered for date nights, work events, family outings and a fun way to entertain your friends.

Uber Eats & Chill, nationwide, indefinitely

Are you among the 61% of South Africans who have admitted to binge-watching their favourite series on a regular basis? Or, have you taken this even further with ‘binge-racing’ − watching full seasons of a series in less than 24 hours?

Uber Eats is the perfect companion for watching your favourite shows. Not only is it an easy way to get your preferred foods without having to miss crucial viewing minutes, it also allows you to immerse yourself even further in your series with foods and flavours that complement them.

With the Broadcast Research Council of South Africa (BRCSA) recently revealing South Africa’s most-watched shows, Uber Eats offers some suggestions on which of its partnering restaurants pair best.

Our Perfect Wedding

If in Cape Town, why not toast to the bride and groom with a beverage from Norman Goodfellows? Durbanites can clink their glasses filled with booze from Blue Bottle and Gautengers can do so with a drink from The Fridge.


With this being a lekker local show, it should of course be accompanied by SA flavours like biltong from BiltongBuddy in Cape Town, pap topped with Chakalaka and served with a steak from Homestead in Johannesburg or an ikaasi burger with tjips from Afro’s Chicken in Durban. 


With an all-star cast and songs that will have everyone singing along, this classic rom-com is best enjoyed with milkshakes and burgers from McDonalds in Durbs, Junior in Cape Town and Mike’s Kitchen in Jozi. 

Eat, Pray, Love

With one of the stops on her travels being India, why not get Uber Eats to deliver a  yummy curry from Kebabish in Durban, Dosa Hut in Jo’burg or Curry Club in Cape Town?

Lady and the Tramp

The ideal meal to accompany this classic is obviously spaghetti and meatballs (served with a side of nostalgia) which can be easily ordered from Mimmos in Johannesburg, Mustacchio Caffe in Cape Town and Panarottis in Durban.

“The app has a wide variety of food to choose from for any series or movie binge session, with something for everyone to enjoy – regardless of what they watch. Plus, it’s so user friendly and easy to navigate, you won’t need to tear your eyes away too much from your screen. Best of all, you can order from the comfort of your couch,” says Uber Eats General Manager, Ailyssa Khan.
