Pick your film at London’s first cinema on the River Thames here.What is it?
A sunset cruise on the Thames followed by a screening of a movie on the top deck of a boat – in the shadow of some of London’s greatest sights. Movies include ‘Jaws’, ‘The Shape of Water’, ‘Grease’ and ‘Clueless’.
When is it?
Five nights a week this summer, setting sail on Wednesday June 13.
Each summer, Londoners love to watch movies in parks, on roofs, in squares. Now you can add the River Thames to that list by jumping on board Time Out’s exclusive cinema boat for a once-in-a-lifetime movie experience. Before the sun hits the horizon, Time Out will welcome you on board City Cruises’ sleek vessel City Alpha, which will be well-stocked with drink and snacks to buy on board. After a sunset cruise, we will invite you to take a seat on the upper deck to watch your chosen film. Once the sun goes down, 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 vessel’s open-top deck.
Get your tickets to this totally unique experience and join some fun-loving people on a summer jaunt you won't forget in a hurry.
