As good as a drive-in cinema: Hire a vehicle from around about cars and make your way to one of the open air movie locations in and around the Mother City!
Don’t let the chance go by to watch your favourite movie under the stars: Up until April you can decide on one of the four sites which offer something for every taste and schedule: classic and romantic movies, blockbusters with action heroes, foreign insider features, comedies and much more.

Each Thursday, the V&A Waterfront welcomes you and on Staurday evenings you might drive a bit further: Variantly the Farms in the Winelands show their motion pictures and offer their own red and white drinkable grapes!

Don’t miss out on some of the World’s most reputable wines!
The last weekend in January should make you driving through to the famous University Town of Stellenbosch.
