According to, a floating cinema will be coming to the waters of Cincinnati, Ohio from September 23rd to 27th that will be in alignment with social distancing. It’s perfectly designed to meet the CDC safety standards for a safe public experience.

It’s going to be like a drive-in movie theater but with 12 to 24 mini boats that can hold up to eight people each. The official location of where the boats will be floating has not been released yet, but they did say they will be playing a mixture of old and newly released movies.

It’s required that you purchase a whole boat for social distancing purposes and to make sure that people will only be seated with their family or friends.

The cinematic experience will provide free popcorn to all visitors attending a movie and there will be other types of snacks and drinks you can purchase before getting into the boat.

Cincinnati will not be the only place these magical movie experiences will be held. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Birmingham, Alabama, and even Calgary in Canada are expected to have these mini boats floating around their city waters giving folks a wonderful night to remember.
