A night under the stars with Ben Stiller & Owen Wilson

“Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?” – Zoolander

Imagine being outside on a warm summer night… You can see the sun going down, seeing the sky turn from blue to orange. You have a nice blankie, a soft chair, a cold glass of Amarula.. & around you there’s people everywhere, laughing and having fun!

I have to say – personally I always love having people around me! Maybe it’s because I got used to traveling and spent almost a year of my life sleeping in a room with other people in Backpackers. Maybe it’s because it’s just too quiet for me without other people around. And also it’s just weird if it is just me talking to myself (right?)..

Anyways, back to what I was talking about: HAPPY PEOPLE, FUN, AWESOME MOVIE, PRETTY VIEWS – pretty much sums it up!

So what am I talking about? The Galileo Open Air Cinema! : “The Galileo Open Air Cinema invites Cape Town locals and visitors to a memorable movie experience under a ceiling of stars. From November to April, The Galileo brings you a diversity of endearing, all-time classic films in its unique open air setting.”

Tonight, it was ‘Zoolander’ time (Very funny movie directed by Ben Stiller AND with Ben Stiller & Owen Wilson playing in it) – the beautiful location was Kirstenbosch Gardens!

So, this is how it looked coming in:

You could dress up and get your picture taken! This gives you a chance to win tickets to the next event!

If you watched ‘Zoolander’ before, you know he had a couple of  (“very different looking”) ‘looks’. One of them is ‘Blue Steel’. So I tried it out:

I am a HUGE fan of open air cinemas! When I hear about open air cinemas, I just wanna go. As much as I can!

This was definitely a super cool experience here! If this doesn’t make you want to go see, I don’t know what will. Believe me: It’s awesomeeeeee!

Other movies coming up soon at Galileo: Grease, Moulin Rouge, Harry Potter, Love Actually, Home Alone, Ice Age, The Shining and loads more!

Thanks for reading and checking this out guys, let me know what you think or if you know of cool places I should go to. Always love to talk to other people about beautiful places in Cape Town!
