Time Out Live Presents Movies on the River With City Cruises

Can you imagine watching a movie under the stars on the top deck of a boat on the river Thames? Time Out will make that dream a reality this summer with Time Out Live presents Movies on the River with City Cruises – London’s first ever cinema on the Thames. Each night throughout June and July a movie boat will offer a food and drink-fuelled sunset cruise from the Tower of London.
After dark, the movie will play on a big screen on the open-air top deck of the City Alpha as the boat is moored in central London. Each night you can enjoy classic movies you love, including ‘Grease’ and ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’, as well as musicals such as ‘La La Land’ or ‘The Greatest Showman’. Other movies playing will be endlessly romantic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘Notting Hill’ or ‘Dirty Dancing’.

Tickets are on sale now and start at £29. Time Out Live presents Movies on the River with City Cruises includes the sunset cruise on the Thames prior the open-air movie screening.
