Aftersun at Movies on the River presented by Time Out and Häagen-Dazs

Enjoy a glimmer of Turkish sun on the Thames with this touching father-daughter drama

What is it?

Häagen-Dazs has crowned this season ‘The Summer of Summers’, which is something we can really get on board with. Together, we’re hosting feel-good film screenings with our glorious city as your backdrop. You’ll hop aboard a City Cruises vessel and enjoy a sunset cruise on the Thames, followed by a screening of a movie on the top deck of a boat with delicious Häagen-Dazs ice cream – in the shadow of some of London’s greatest sights.

When is it? 

Thursday August 10. Check-in starts at 7.30pm and the boat will depart promptly by 8pm.

Why buy?

As the sun goes down over London, Movies on the River will have you reliving your favourite cinematic moments – and maybe even discover some new stories – with Time Out’s handpicked curation of summer bangers. We will invite you to take a seat on the upper deck of City Cruises’ sleek vessel City Alpha, and after a sunset cruise, the boat will dock in the shadow of some of the capital’s most popular sights and the night’s movie will play on a large, cinema-style screen on the open-top deck. Of course, the experience comes rounded off with refreshments from the full bar, classic cinema snacks and delicious Häagen-Dazs ice cream which will be handed out on arrival (with more available to buy once you’re there). And if the weather turns, there are blankets and a backup screen inside. How’s that for an epic summer experience?
