Float-In Cinema: Valentine's Edition
Splash around and sip cocktails while watching romantic flicks.
January 23, 2024
If you're going to watch a romantic film with your other half this Valentine's Day, you may as well do so while you're splashing around in a pool — especially if that's the kind of watery movie date that you've never had before. That's what's on the bill at Brisbane's returning outdoor cinema pop-up, aka the fittingly called Float-In Cinema. Once again setting up at W Brisbane, it's taking over the riverside hotel's WET Deck for three nights in February to pair swim-in flicks with food and cocktails.
Screening from Monday, February 12–Wednesday, February 14 — with a 6.30pm seating time for a 7.15pm start — Float-In Cinema costs $115 per person. For that price, you'll float on the water in an inflatable lounger, watch the movie (obviously), tuck into your choice of three grazing boxes, sip a glass of bubbles or a One in a Melon cocktail upon arrival, and enjoy unlimited sweet or salty popcorn.
Those food options include a cheese box packed with aged cheddar, double brie and blue cheese; a savoury box with prosciutto, bresaola and truffled salumi; and a sweet box with macaroons, mini tarts and mini cakes. Whichever you select, you'll need to email the venue in advance to make your pick.
If you're keen, you might want to get in quick, as seats are limited per session. And as for what you'll be watching, romance is the natural theme. So, that means La La Land, The Notebook (because as Barbie demonstrated, there's no such thing as too much Ryan Gosling) and — yes, on the day itself — Valentine's Day.
