Time Out Live presents Movies on the River with City Cruises

Description
  • Highlights:

    • Time Out invites you to sail up the Thames in the middle of London for an evening of film, food and drink on the river.
    • A true original, this will be London's first cinema sailing on the river – and a unique addition to the city's thriving outdoor pop-up cinema scene.
    • After cruising down the Thames, once the sun sets, a movie will be projected on a large screen on the boat's open-top deck.
    • Films include 'Jaws', 'Notting Hill', 'Romeo + Juliet' and this year's Best Film Oscar nominee 'La La Land'.

    More details:

    Each summer, Londoners love to watch movies in parks, on roofs, in squares – but never before has the city sat down for a movie after a cruise along the River Thames. Now, Time Out is giving you that opportunity with our exclusive cinema boat. Before the sun hits the horizon, Time Out will welcome you on board City Cruises’ sleek vessel City Alpha, which will be well-stocked with drink and snacks to buy on board. After a sunset cruise, we will invite you to take a seat on the upper deck to watch your chosen film. Once the sun goes down, a movie will play on a large, cinema-style screen on the boat's open-top deck.

    Get your tickets to this totally unique experience and join some fun-loving people on a summer jaunt you won't forget in a hurry.
