Review: Galileo Open Air Cinema

Review: Galileo Open Air Cinema

| November 5, 2015 | 0 Comments

Few things sound better than drinks, dinner and a movie under the stars; Galileo has the perfect summer activity here. My only major criticism is the movie selection. There’s a glut of romance, and several cheesy blockbusters. The cult classics and art house movies are appealing, but the line-up needs more variety – some science fiction, horror, crime thrillers, and good dramas, That said, the movie is only one part of a quintessentially chilled night out. Even the dreadful Cocktail (1988, starring Tom Cruise) was good for a laugh when paired with the utter pleasure of relaxing in the glorious outdoors on a gorgeously warm evening with a glass of wine and great food. Give me a first-class movie and I could do this all summer.

The four band mates from the UK kept the crowd dancing with the well-known, strings-strong songs from their first two albums, and some of their newer stuff. It’s hard to keep still when four (very good-looking) men are up on stage, singing harmoniously while strumming banjos, guitars, violins and cellos. Folk meets rock, and it’s love at first sight.

CTCB’s Maynardville season presents Night & Day, a ballet set to the music of Cole Porter. Maynardville’s open-air theatre is always a pleasure to experience, and with the stars twinkling above it offers the perfect setting for this glitzy production. As expected, there are lots of colourful, high-energy pieces, with the dancers doing a great job to maintain their bounce and pizzazz throughout.
