Time Out says

There's only a few weeks left to get to Sydney's famous floating cinema – now with a half-price offer

So we've had movies in the park, movies by the beach, outdoor movies in bed, and movies set in front of the glorious Sydney Harbour – you'd almost believe that this city had exhausted all the possible ways of having an alfresco cinematic experience. Until now, that is.

Mov'in Bed is upping the ante on summer movie-going this year and transforming into Mov'in Boat by bringing a fun (and socially distanced) floating cinema to the harbour. The water-bound season will run until March 21, 2021. But how will you choose to watch? 

Head out onto the lapping harbour waters via rowboat ($119.90 for up to four people – or just you and your date), lie back in a plush day bed on a floating pontoon ($99.90 for two people and $109.90 for three), or go full luxury with the VIP option. It's $149.90 for two people and $169.90 for three people, and you'll get umbrellas, popcorn and access to an exclusive bar, as well as the option to order a sumptuous fine dining spread from Star restaurants like Sokyo (your go-to for melt-in-your-mouth sushi), Black Bar and Grill (juicy steaks aplenty) or Flying Fish (for a real waterfront extravaganza). 

Unless, of course, you've got your own little water vessel, be that a little dinghy or a luxury yacht. Feel free to pull up by the mega high-definition 4K 12-metre screen and tune in to the film, for just $50 per boat (and feel free also to call us when it's a sunny day and you're thinking of taking that baby out for a sail). Should you feel some mid-movie cravings set in, order fresh fish from the nearby markets, pizzas, cocktails and fairy floss waffles and have them delivered over to your boat or pontoon. Now, that's service. 

As for what you'll be treated to on screen? The season still has one of Bond's all-time best in Casino Royale; no babies put in corners with Dirty Dancing; Gal Gadot shining in Wonder Woman 1984; the hussies vamping it up in Chicago; the eye-opening Promising Young Woman; and plenty more. 
Check here for the full season.

Would you like 50 percent off the ticket price? Use the code MOVINBOAT50 and you'll get half-price tickets for any screening left in the season.
