Paris Opens The Summer Season With Socially-Distant Floating Cinema

With this whole COVID-19 and social distancing situation, various businesses and event organizers are forced to come up with creative ways to make regular social gatherings and other events safe for their clients and visitors. Because of that, many unique concepts for events can be seen rapidly emerging all around the world.

For instance, this July, Paris is launching its first-ever floating cinema where people will watch movies in socially distant electric boats! The “Cinéma sur l’Eau”—or cinema on the water—will take place on July 18 in the Seine river. This movie night is being hosted to celebrate the return of Paris Plages, an annual city-run program that creates temporary beaches in the French capital during the summertime.

Since all the seats are free and there are only 38 of them, people have to enter a raffle in order to win them. Others will still be able to enjoy the session sitting on one of the 150 deckchairs spread out on the banks of the Seine. People can participate in the lottery until July 15th.
