Check out a few of the world’s famous floating cinemas:

  • Thailand

If you want some dramatic landscape to add that perfect touch for your movie experience, then the Archipelago Cinema is just for you. Escape the typical dark and rather dank place of the movie house and breathe some fresh air into your movie experience. This floating cinema was the brainchild of Apichatpong Weerasethakul and Tilda Swinton as part of the Film on the Rocks Yao Ni, a new film festival.

The theater was designed by German born and Beijing-based architect Ole Scheeren. And it was built using recycled materials. The moviegoers are whisked away into the beautiful Nai Pi Lae Lagoon in Kudu Island which is a set of magnificently formed rocks.

  • Toronto

Toronto’s floating cinema is called Sail In Cinema. This cinema is a two sided cinema that allows moviegoers to watch the movie from both sides of the screen.

Considered to be the largest outdoor cinema in the world, the Sail In Cinema shows movies that the moviegoers themselves have voted for. The Sail In Cinema is an inflatable 40 by 20 foot screen that floats on a four story tall frame and is usually located at the 25 Dockside Drive.

  • London

If you want to your fix of award winning movies that are not found in main stream movies, then this is the theater just for you! The rightfully called Floating Cinema in London can be found in Granary Square at King’s Cross.

The unique canal boat was designed by Duggan Morris Architects, with the boat redesigned from an old work boat. It has enclosed cabins at both end and a 4 meter long glass fronted interior which gives moviegoers a pleasant view of the lovely yet historical London.

What’s a plus is that moviegoers who did not have time to catch the boat can have a glimpse of the cinema, since it has an engine that allows it to move around the canal.
