After a year of lockdowns, social distancing and wishing we’d had the foresight to buy stocks in the hand sanitizer industry, the simple joys of watching a film on the big screen has never been more appealing.
Now you can take your movie-going to the next level thanks to the good folks at Mov’in Bed and Mov’in Car who premiered their floating cinema experience on December 3, 2020.
Located in Sydney’s Darling Harbour, the 1000sm floating screen can be viewed via one of 40 rowboats for hire (you can also BYOB(oat) if you’re fancy) or 65 summer lounge beds with refreshments provided by two floating bars. I’m just going to say it. We deserve this!
Demand for this event has been so high that the season has been extended through February, giving you even more chances to catch a great film and have a unique experience.
If you’re already sold and want to know what’s playing, we’ve picked some of our favourites for you to enjoy. But you’d better get in quick, they’re booking out fast.
