Cinemas in the UK are now open, so you can grab your popcorn and see the latest blockbusters somewhere other than your couch.
For some, though, safety concerns might put them off visiting indoor spaces, which is why there’s been something of a resurgence in unique cinematic experiences such as drive-ins.
One of the more unique of these is Cinema Sur l’Eau, a new cinema concept being installed in Paris to allow people to socially distance while they watch a film.
Movie-goers will sit on their own little electric boat on the Bassin de la Villett between the Loire and the Seine, watching a large projector on the bank.
It’ll take place on 18 July, and marks the start of Paris Plages, a festival where mini beaches are set up along the river.
Hundreds of people will get the chance to be part of Cinema on the Water – created by Haagen Dazs and MK2 – and will be watching Le Grand Bain (English title, Sink or Swim); a film about a group of men who start their own synchronised swimming team.
There are 38 boats due to set sail, and 150 chairs set up so more punters can get a chance to enjoy the evening.
No details as yet on how they get popcorn and massive drinks over to the boats, but as long as the weather is fine it’ll certainly be a night to remember – especially after being stuck inside for so long.
It appears floating entertainment centres are happening right now, as London looks set to get the UK’s first-ever floating lido and spa on a converted old barge.
When that comes around we can always watch a movie on our phones and try beat Paris at their own game.
