Float In Cinema 2021
Splash around and sip cocktails while watching water-themed movies.
If you're going to watch Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet on the Titanic, or just see Leo hang out at an idyllic secret beach in, well, The Beach, you may as well do so while you're splashing around in a pool. That's what's on the bill at Brisbane's returning 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 three Wednesday nights in January and February, pairing swim-in movies with food and cocktails.
Screening on January 13, 20 and 27, and on February 3, 10 and 17 — 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 32 seats are available per session. Also, if you're a fan of shark movies, you can check out Open Water as part of the program, too — or relive the lake scene in Dirty Dancing, watch Tom Hanks get stuck on an island surrounded by water in Cast Away and see what happens in a boat with a tiger in Life of Pi.
