Movies on the River Thames- London

Cinema river Cruise – £29.00 pp

The other night in London I heard about the launch of Movies on the River – London’s first ever open-air cinema to cruise the Thames.

This interesting addition to London’s popular outdoor cinema spot is a summer partnership between City Cruises and Timeout. So get moving if you want to book a seat as it’s now open five nights a week until the middle of July.


The opening night saw a jam packed force pile on board the City Alpha boat. The boat offers food and drink as it gets dark, and once everyone has settled down, the classic Steven Spielberg’s 1975  ‘Jaws’ begins.

The Alpha sailed under Tower Bridge and out east past the Isle of Dogs, Greenwich and The Dome. Later it travels under Tower Bridge as the movie comes to a close as you sit amongst the stars. You cannot miss it guys so jump on board! For me the best part of it was the hustle and bustle before the movie starts and everyone is trying to get settled in on the open top boat, its definitely an interesting experience to try

So just remember you will be able to jump onboard this movie boat over the next couple of  weeks with screen films such as ‘Love Actually’ (Thursday June 22), ‘When Harry Met Sally’ (Saturday June 24) and ‘Top Gun’ (Wednesday June 28). Jaws will be shown again on Saturday the 1st July if you want to take the risk. Lets think about it for a second –  watching Jaws on a boat cruising on the Thames!! Its just funny to me

Next time, we’re gonna need a bigger boat.

Check out the link below for more details, or you can go through the Timeout website or even google – whatever is easy for you.

    I hadn’t heard of this! So cool, I’m really keen to do a River Thames cruise as I haven’t done it yet. Maybe this is the one for me!

    Live for 4 years in London and didn’t know about this.
    I miss London actually. Great blog! Didn’t people get into ‘psychic panic’ mode? I know I would have… it’s kind like watching Titanic on a boat, or Psycho in a old psychiatrist hospital. (Damn, I hope I didn’t give anyone ideas…)
