Float In Cinema
Splash around and sip cocktails while watching water-themed movies.
If you're going to watch Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron run across a beach in Baywatch, you may as well do so while you're splashing around in a pool. The same applies to Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams locking lips in the rain in The Notebook, and to Leonardo DiCaprio sunning himself in The Beach's secret paradise.
They're all on the bill at Brisbane's newest outdoor cinema pop-up — the fittingly called Float In Cinema. A collaboration between W Brisbane and Openair Cinemas, it's taking over the riverside hotel's WET Deck for five Tuesday nights in February and March, pairing swim-in movies with food and cocktails.
Perhaps that's why Cocktail, the 1988 flick starring Tom Cruise as a bartender, is on the bill. If you're a fan of shark movies, you can check out Open Water, too.
Kicking off on February 25, then screening on March 3, 10, 17 and 24 as well — with a 7pm seating time for a 7.30pm start — Float In Cinema costs $25 per person. Your ticket includes a recliner chair, a dip in the pool and use of a towel. You'll have to buy your food and drinks on top, but they will be delivered to you on floating trays.
If you're keen, you might want to get in quick, as only 40 seats are available per session.
