Steeped in the glittering iridescence of early cinematic fantasy and swirling with the vivid beauty of breathtaking modern creativity, Short & Sweet Cinema cordially invite you to park your bonnet at this season’s debut of the City Bowl Drive-In….

Featuring a diverse programme of ground-breaking feature films and nostalgic enchantment, Cape Town’s original pop-up drive-in cinema will take place every Thursday in a secluded urban field, nestled in the heart of the city bowl and framed by Table Mountain.
