Enjoy Drive-In-Style Movies With This Aquatic Socially-Distanced Cinema

With no signs of a post-COVID world anywhere on the immediate horizon, more and more companies and businesses are seeking novel ways of operating amidst an ongoing global pandemic, and one of the coolest and most clever examples of this has to be the movies being screened at Paris Plages (or “Paris Beaches”).

The inaugural event – which has fittingly been dubbed Cinéma sur l’eau (or “Cinema on the water”) – takes obvious inspiration from drive-in movie theaters, however, instead of using cars and a lot, this experience sees movies projected onto a massive 52.5’ x 29.5’ screen overlooking the Seine river. Paris Plages has acquired 38 all-electric boats that allow audience members to enjoy the movie, surroundings, and overall experience while remaining socially-distanced. Due to the limited number of boats and the high-demand, the company is using a raffle system to determine reservations, rather than a first-come-first-serve system. Even if you aren’t selected for the raffle however, there’s also an additional 150 chairs that have been set up on the banks of the Seine that also provide great views of the enormous screen. The first showing was held over the weekend on July 18, and the events are scheduled to run through the 30th of August.
