Mov’in Bed was much more than just your routine movie and pizza night. But now, even it looks tame compared to this.

Sydney, meet Mov’in Boat—the only cinema floating on the harbour this summer, maybe ever.
Alright, Mov’in Boat kicks the season off on 3 December and will continue through to 21 March, 2021, which gives all of us plenty of time to get on down to enjoy a movie on their 4K, fifteen-metre, high-definition screen.
But the real question is, how are we floating on the harbour?
The answer is that there are four ways you can experience Sydney’s newest cinema.
You can hire a rowboat ($119.90) for you and up to three others and you’ll be the closest to the water and also to the screen. If you’re a bit unsure how you’d do on a boat, though, there’s also a floating pontoon kitted out with luxe day beds (1-2 people $99.90, 3 people $109.90).
The third and most luxe choice of all is the VIP Pack which includes tables, umbrellas, a queen-size day bed, butler service and food and cocktails from The Star’s top restaurants. VIP tickets are already selling out.
The final way to watch a movie on the harbour this summer is to bring along your own boat. It will set you back $3o but you can bring along as many of your friends, family and tagalongs as you can safely hold onboard.
In terms of food, you will not be going hungry. On offer this season you’ll find gourmet Italian pizzas, fish & chips, prawn buckets, Belgian waffles, ice cream, and, popcorn of course. And for when the nights are hot, you’ll be able to cool down with frozen cocktails, craft beers, and wines. If you’re looking to save a penny, you are able to bring snacks and soft drink, but no hot food or alcohol.
The movies showing this season are a mixed bag of newer films like Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, classics like Casablanca, and murder-mysteries in the form of Death On The Nile. So far the programme has only been scheduled as far forward as 27 December with movies showing every night except Mondays.
