There’s a brand new experience for film fans to check out this summer, with the arrival of a floating cinema in London.
Openaire, Merchant Square and GoBoat are joining forces for the new venture, which is due to arrive at Paddington’s Merchants Square on September 2.
A total of 16 boats will provide the socially-distanced seating for up to 128 people, with film lovers enjoying screenings while floating on the Regent’s Canal.
The line-up will include family favourites such as Toy Story and The Lion King, as well as sing-a-long screenings of Grease, Rocketman and The Greatest Showman.
Films will be shown on a 6x3m LED screen, with audio coming via wireless headphones. Guests who don’t wish to venture onto the water can choose to watch the screenings from deckchairs in the square.
There’ll be food available from pasta specialists RaviOllie, with a pop-up kitchen set up on on the water’s edge.
Tickets for the experience are on sale now. They can be bought here.
It’s the latest cinematic venture in the capital, with open air film screenings and drive-in events taking place after lockdown.
