If you don’t know by now, I am obsessed with wine estates. I’m constantly looking for ones to explore. And living in the Western Cape means I’m spoiled for choice! So when we were offered complimentary tickets for another screening at the Galileo Open Air Cinema, Hillcrest Quarry was the obvious choice.

If you read my last post about the Galileo Cinema you’d know that the weather plays a big role in the success of these screenings. So it was with bated breath that we chose the screening of Searching for Sugarman at the Hillcrest Quarry. We’d visited the the Hillcrest restaurant before but never went as far as the quarry itself which is a popular choice for weddings, concerts and other events. I was quite taken aback when I saw the quarry for the first time. The view from the top is absolutely breathtaking and totally does it justice. It was a bit chilly though and we didn’t expect to get cold given the recent Cape Town weather! But luckily we’d taken the comfy option when purchasing our tickets so we were cosied up under our blankets during the movie.

I didn’t expect much from the Searching for Sugarman documentary as I hadn’t really heard of the artist before but the story of Rodriguez really touched my heart and I found myself heading to the iStore afterwards to search for some of the songs featured in the doccie! So it was third time lucky for us at the Galileo Cinema and it’s funny how things work out because we’d never have seen this documentary if it wasn’t for the cancellation of the screening we attended three weeks ago.
