On the Water Floating Cinema to Social Distance is Happening in Paris

If there’s one thing I think we’re all missing right now it’s going to the movies. Unless you are taking advantage of the drive-ins that are popping up this summer there’s really no other way to see them. Films are being pushed back to when it will be safe for patrons to return to brick and mortar theaters but in the meantime we’re stuck with our old DVD collection. Or streaming of course if you have that available to you. There are many places trying to adapt and one in Paris will be doing just that with a “boat-in” theater on the water.

Le cinema sur l’eau

If you want to go see “Le Grand Bain” a comedy about a group of men who start a synchronized swimming team then you will want to enter the raffle to claim one of the boats. Of course you have to be in Paris at the time of the screening which will be on July 18th. The event is part of an annual festivity put on by the French Capital called Paris Plages where they created temporary beaches along the Seine and the Bassin de la Villette in the summer. Cinema chain Mk2 collaborated with Häagen-Dazs to create “Cinéma sur l’Eau” (cinema on the water).

A press release from PR company Spark Agency, each boat seats four to six people, while social-distancing practices ensure that groups are family or friends. It’s just as good as being in a car if not better because you don’t have to worry about a dirty windshield while watching the film.

If you will be in the area you can join the raffle from July 7th – 15th by clicking here.
