Liverpool’s first ever floating cinema, the Pop-up Floating Cinema, is taking place this summer from 4th-10th August 2019. With the emerging summer weather there’s no better way to celebrate the sun than a film night with your pals. Guests will be able to enjoy their favourite films with a scenic backdrop and setting of the Docks.
The full list of films and tickets will be published on Albert Dock’s website from Skiddle on Friday 21st June at 9am.
Visitors can opt for:
- A day-time showing from 2-4pm with an array of children’s films, such as Finding Nemo, Shark Tale and Lady and the Tramp.
- Or book one of the evening films from 6-9pm, with highlights including Grease, Titanic, and Castaway, with many of the films keeping with the nautical theme of the Dock.
“Guests will be able to snuggle under branded Albert Dock blankets on beanbags and deckchairs, whilst watching the big screen from the 130 capacity floating pontoon. With artificial grass, atmospheric festoon lighting and a covering over-head canopy, the pontoon will ensure comfortable viewing with a magical setting, regardless of the weather.”
There are also a number of food and drinks on offer, with restaurants on the Dock each taking it in turn to provide refreshments for guests.
“Guests will be able to enjoy everything from Fish & Chips in cones from Panam, and Mojitos & Burritos from Revolucion de Cuba, to Pizza from Gusto, along with more from the likes of Maray, Tate Liverpool and Rosa’s Thai Cafe. Cocktails, wine, beer and soft drinks will also be on offer from the pop-up bar located at the back of the pontoon to keep thirsts quenched throughout the film.”
Clare Rawlinson, Head of Marketing for Royal Albert Dock commented, “We’re very excited to launch Liverpool’s first floating cinema, which is just one of the many great events we have planned for this summer as part of the new events programme. The pop-up cinema demonstrates the creative potential of the Dock whilst showcasing the impressive food and drink offering, and we’re confident it will be a success with both locals and out of town visitors.”
