You Can Sit In Socially-Distanced Boats In This Incredible Outdoor Cinema
With the world slowly opening up and our summer looking evermore salvageable, we're all ears for fun activities to get involved in.
Now that France has been made exempt from FCOs advice against all non-essential international travel, we thought we'd direct your attention to a cool event taking place in Paris this month.
Ideal for those who have been missing the cinema, cinema chain Mk2 and Häagen-Dazs have teamed up to celebrate the reopening of picture houses in the country to create 'Cinéma sur l'Eau' - that's cinema on the water.
On 18th July at 7.30pm, 150 lucky applicants will win the chance to watch a movie on an enormous screen while floating on boats on the river Seine that passes through the capital.
A grasp on French is necessary, as movie-goers will be watching Le Grand Bain - a French comedy about a team of men who start a synchronised swimming team.
There will be 38 boats seating six to four people and organisers will ensure groups are members of the same household to adhere to social distancing.
Meanwhile, another 150 people will be able to watch the film from deckchairs on the land.

The event ties in with Paris's annual Paris Plages, which sees the banks of the river Seine and the Bassin de la Villette transformed into temporary beaches in the summer months.
You can enter a raffle to win tickets at this link until July 15th and lucky applicants will be notified by email on the closing day.
That'll give you three days to plan your trip to the capital - something you can do with you mind at ease given the UK government are now allowing non-essential travel to the country since 4th July.
A quick weekend trip to Paris complete with a cosy movie on the river (Champers in hand) sounds like exactly the kind of thing we need right now...
