This summer Time Out is launching the first ever open-air cinema to sail the Thames – and we’ve just added a screening of Baz Luhrmann’s swooning romance ‘Romeo + Juliet’ to the line-up so that you can watch Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes fall in love while cruising down the river after sunset.
‘Romeo + Juliet’ will screen on our open-air movie boat on the evening of Friday June 16 and will follow an opening-night screening of Steven Spielberg's ‘Jaws’ on Thursday June 15.
If neither ‘Jaws’ nor ‘Romeo + Juliet’ float your boat, don’t worry – we've plenty of other movies screening as part of the same series.
For five nights a week from June 15 to July 15 (with more dates to come), Movies on the River with City Cruises will board at Tower Pier by the Tower of London at 8pm. After we set off, sailing under Tower Bridge, you’ll be able to enjoy a bar stocked with drinks and snacks. Once the sun goes down, we'll play a movie on the boat’s top deck as we cruise past some of London’s top sights. The films will include ‘Love Actually’, ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’, ‘The Little Mermaid’, ‘Back to the Future’ and ‘Casablanca’.
Tickets are already selling fast for what promises to be a unique addition to London's pop-up cinema scene – so book now before this ship sails!
