Paris Plages, an annual event organized by the French capital, creates temporary beaches along the Seine and the Bassin de la Villette during the summer.

To celebrate the event, and the recent reopening of movie theaters in France after being closed due to the coronavirus, cinema chain Mk2 collaborated with Häagen-Dazs to create "Cinéma sur l'Eau" (cinema on the water).

On July 18 at 7.30 p.m., 150 locals will watch "Le Grand Bain" — a comedy about a group of men who start a synchronized swimming team — from 38 electric boats floating on the water.

According to a press release from PR company Spark Agency, each boat seats four to six people, while social-distancing practices ensure that groups are family or friends.

Another 150 people will be able to watch the movie from deck chairs on land. Send us a message and let us know what you think about this Boat-In Cinema Muskoka.
