​You Can Now Go To A Socially-Distanced Floating Cinema In Miami

​You Can Now Go To A Socially-Distanced Floating Cinema In Miami

It feels like a lifetime since we last settled in for a movie at our local multiplex with a big bucket of popcorn.

With cinema chains having remained closed for months, industry bosses are having to get creative when it comes to movie-going - and this epic 60-foot floating screen is a prime example.

Located in Key Biscayne in sunny Miami, Florida, the sail-in cinema allows you to drop anchor and watch a fan-favourite flick from the water.

Run by Ballyhoo Media - who have previously used giant floating screens to air sporting events like the World Cup and the Super Bowl - the ocean cinema is perfect for the age of social distancing.

Boats are required to follow capacity restrictions, with entry costing $50 (£38) per vessel.

Just imagine catching a classic movie as the sun sets over the waves, with boats bobbing on the water. Dreamy!

With the ongoing COVID pandemic changing the world for the foreseeable future, we could see more pop-ups like this spring to life as companies and entire industries adapt to the current climate.

A Socially Distanced Cinema Is Coming To The UK - And You Don't Need A Car

published at7 months ago

Jet-skier Jose Salas, 24, was unexpectedly treated to a movie night with a twist as he whizzed around the crystal waters of the Key Biscayne.

Swapping the auditorium for a sail-in, Jose caught a screening of (quite suitably) Pirates of The Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

Jose said: "It was a fun experience and also not scary at all as people might think of it as.

"Due to COVID, I think this is a nice way of enjoying something different and going to watch a movie somewhere while also keeping social distant."

Sadly, we're not sure if the same concept would be quite the same in the chilly waters of the UK - but that won't stop us dreaming of our own sail-in cinema experience.
