A brand new experience is coming to London; a Float-In cinema. A fleet of 16 eco-boats will provide the seating for up to 128 people at this outdoors cinematic experience upon the Regent’s Canal in September.
Upon arrival, guests will captain their self-drive vessel around Little Venice before mooring at Merchant Square to watch a feature film. A giant 6x3m Hi-res LED video screen facing the water will show blockbuster hits such as Titanic and A Star Is Born. High-quality audio will be provided via sanitised wireless headphones to ensure an uninterrupted experience.
The line-up includes afternoon showings of family favourites such as Toy Story and The Lion Kings, plus special singalong showings in the evening of Grease, Rocketman and The Greatest Showman. And if guests haven’t found their sea legs yet fear not, there will also be dozens of socially spaced deckchairs along the towpath. Popcorn and snacks will be available for punters to order via a dedicated app and delivered straight to their boat or deckchair.
To tie in with the Little Venice theme, award-winning artisan pasta chef RaviOllie will be setting up a pop-up kitchen on the water’s edge to provide delicious freshly cooked Italian food. Audiences can order without leaving their boat via the app and waiting staff will bring it to them.
