The hot trend from social media: whirlpool instead of nasty cinema seat: open-air cinema in the bubbling water
Pack your swimming trunks and go to the cinema! What sounds like a joke is developing into a global trend: open-air cinema in the bubbling whirlpool. The hot tub fleet will tour throughout Germany from May. We reveal which locations will be converted into outdoor cinema halls.
- Outdoor jacuzzi cinema is the latest trend on Facebook.
- It starts in Berlin-Friedrichshain at the end of May.
- The first tickets are now available.
Watching your favorite film while sitting in a bubble bath heated to warm water with your best friends – what could be nicer! This is exactly what you can do all over Germany this summer.
"One evening we had the idea of watching a movie in the garden. Since we were just getting our new, inflatable whirlpool at the time, we simply combined the two points," the organizers explain their project. It has been electrifying the Facebook community across the country for days. Some event venues already recorded over 9,000 confirmations after just five days.
Over the roofs of Berlin
The cinema spectacle with swimming trunks premiered on May 30 in the newly opened "Haubentaucher Lounge-Bar", the Berlin hipster center of the hour in the Friedrichshain district. From here there is a spectacular view over the banks of the Spree, the neighboring Kreuzberg and the Berlin TV tower.
Tickets are available here from 33 euros. As in all cities, the exact price depends on whether you reserve a single place in a 6-person pool or prefer to book an entire bubbler for yourself and your friends. This variant is around two euros more expensive per person.
Open air at Cologne Cathedral
In Cologne, the "Unicorn Skylounge" serves as an open-air location: on July 25, a giant screen will be set up on the roof terrace of the brand new "Solution Space" high-rise directly at Cologne Cathedral, inviting people to spend their evening in an unconventional manner to end.
The inner courtyard of hip Praterinsel is the setting for the Munich edition on June 13th. Located directly on the Isar, the second of the two built-up islands in the river is one of the trendiest event locations in the city.
It pays to be quick
Because only around 30 pools are available per city and the quota is therefore very limited, you have to be quick as soon as the starting signal is given for the coveted tickets. In Munich, this is the case on Saturday, April 18, at 12 noon.
In addition, further events are planned in Stuttgart, Offenburg, Karlsruhe, Frankfurt and Hamburg. Dates and tickets should be available in the coming weeks. The flap for the last open-air cinema falls on August 14 in Freiburg.
