The Covid-19 pandemic is still very complicated in many parts of the world, forcing many countries to temporarily close a series of public entertainment places to limit the spread of the disease. This has made the film market in the first half of 2020 extremely bleak. Large and small theaters are not allowed to operate, studios postpone up and down their projects to ensure the health of the cast as well as the production team.
To overcome this situation, recently France has come up with a quite unique and very expensive idea: Opening a temporary movie theater on the river in Paris, the audience will be able to sit on separate boats (from 2 – 6 people / boat) to comply with social spacing. Although before that, the country had allowed the reopening of a number of large movie theaters (using only 50% of seats), this new model of river movies would certainly be a hit. to help people gradually return to the cinematic life in a new normal state.
France is set to open a temporary movie theater on the river, both to help people enjoy the annual festival, and to ensure social separation in the context of Covid-19 still very unpredictable.
Reportedly, this unique theater, called Cinéma sur elabEau (roughly translated: the cinema on the water), is a combination of the Mk2 and Häagen-Dazs cinema chains. This is actually one of the activities of the annual Paris Plages event in Paris, when the government opens a temporary artificial beach along the banks of the Seine River and Bassin de la Villette lake for people to have fun. hello summer.
Cinéma sur l’Eau will only operate at 7.30 pm on July 18 (local time). The movie chosen to be released on this special occasion is Le Grand Bain, a comedy work launched in 2018 revolving around the story of establishing a uniform swimming team from bodybuilding to the movements of funny guys. . The audience will have free time to book tickets from July 7 to July 15, but only 150 lucky people will be selected.
A domestic cinema will be held on the Seine in the French capital Paris.
According to local media company Spark Agency, the audience will be arranged to sit on 38 motorboats, each consisting of 2 – 6 people and of course still follow social spacing measures. In addition, Mk2 and Häagen-Dazs will also try to create conditions for family members and friends to sit together, instead of just randomly arranging for enough seats.
In addition, they designed an onshore seating area for 150 other audiences who also wanted to enjoy Le Grand Bain. With this group of audience, they will not conduct a lottery selection but serve with the form of people who come earlier, they have the right to “nice seats” first, so on until the number is enough.
