‘The Greatest Showman’ is coming to a boat near you!

By Time Out Film

If you’re a fan of the hit musical film ‘The Greatest Showman’, the chances are you’re already seen this year’s surprise hit movie more than once (and you’ve got its catchy tunes stuck in your brain on loop).

But you’ve probably never seen ‘The Greatest Showman’ this way – while relaxing with a drink on the top deck of a boat on the Thames.

The story of circus innovator PT Barnum (Hugh Jackman) is screening several times this summer as part of the outdoor-movie series Movies on the River, brought to you by Time Out.

How does it work? You'll board the sleek City Cruises vessel the Alpha before sunset at Tower Pier and take a cruise past the city’s big sights. When the sun disappears the boat will dock near London Bridge and the film will play on a big screen right at the front of the boat. There’s a bar on board to keep everyone happy, with drinks and snacks, and the views of the city from your seat are amazing.

Not a fan of ‘The Greatest Showman’? Movies on the River is also showing plenty of other great films, old and new, in June and July, including ‘Dunkirk’, ‘Jaws’, ‘Clueless’, ‘Romeo + Juliet’, ‘Top Gun’ and ‘Grease’.

And if you fancy singing along while watching ‘The Greatest Showman’ on Movies on the River? Not a problem – everyone will be wearing silent-disco style headphones, so you’ll be disturbing nobody other than yourself. It’s time to head to the river!

Time Out presents Movies on the River with City Cruises runs five nights a week (Tuesday to Saturday) for 12 weeks, starting on Wednesday July 13. You can explore the lineup and buy tickets here.
