'Floating Cinema' set to entertain people
Following the increasing trend of drive-in movie theaters, an Australian-based movie theater company Beyond Cinema will be offering a “boat-in” movie theater where visitors can watch movies while floating on a boat in a lake, taking social distancing to the next level.
The Australian entertainment and event company, is going to launch “floating cinemas” particularly because it’s easy to maintain social distancing.
The floating theater is coming to Orlando in September, with each showing made of 12 to 24 mini boats that can each hold up to eight people. The one caveat is that your party, regardless of size, has to rent the entire boat in order to guarantee safety.
The cinema will have between 12 and 24 boats with each holding up to eight people. There will be free popcorn and other concessions available for purchase.
The theater plans to make a visit to Houston on the week of September 9. The films will be a mixture of “golden oldies and new releases,” and titles will be announced when tickets go on sale.
Popcorn will be free for all attendees, and other snacks and drinks will be available for purchase.
The Beyond Cinema experience is coming to a handful of cities: Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Houston, Chicago, Miami, New York, Austin, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Columbus, and Cincinnati, as well as Canada. Right now, it’s been confirmed that floating cinemas will be in Los Angeles and San Diego from Sept 2 through Sept 6, and Miami from Sept 9-13.
The company has already successfully launched the venture in Paris.
