If you're hesitant to visit a movie theatre right now, you aren't alone. 

And while there are a number of drive-in movies to attend in the Lower Mainland, there's an alternative way to catch a flick under the stars this summer.

Beyond Cinema presents the "Floating Cinema": a fresh air cinema that allows patrons to enjoy moonlit films with friends and family from the comfort of a physically-distanced mini-boat.

The cinema will be made up of 12 to 24 mini boats, holding up to eight people per boat. Tickets will require you purchase the whole boat to ensure that groups will be seated with friends and family only, and to allow for social distancing on and between boats.

Organizers say movies will be a mix between golden oldies and new releases, and the lineup will be announced when tickets go on sale.

There will be free popcorn for everyone attending, and other movie snacks and drinks will be available to purchase before you set sail.

This unique cinema is coming to Vancouver on Sept. 16 for one week. Location TBA.

Note: This is a pre-registration event only. You will need to purchase a ticket to attend the event.
