Float-In Cinema: Valentine's Edition
Splash around and sip cocktails while watching romantic flicks.
January 21, 2022
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 14–Wednesday, February 16 — with a 7pm seating time for a 7.30pm start — Float-In Cinema costs $50 per person if you're eager for a reclining lounge poolside, and $55 each if you'd like to float on the water in an inflatable lounger. Your ticket includes the movie, obviously, as well as a dip in the pool and use of a towel.
You'll have to buy your food and drinks on top — with options including char siu pork baos, Moroccan chicken wings, and raspberry and rose gin cocktails — but they will be delivered to you on floating trays.
If you're keen, you might want to get in quick, seats are limited per session. And as for what you'll be watching, love is the theme. So, fall head over heels for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in Crazy. Stupid. Love, ponder How to Be Single or laugh along with The Proposal.
