It’s September, the days are getting shorter, the clothing becoming thicker and thoughts of laying on that sun soaked beach in a bikini are but a distant memory. But what if your swimwear could be saved from the oblivion of the back drawn, would you do what you can to help?
I thought you’d say that, your charitable nature is truly remarkable.
Hot Tub Cinema encourages people to don their finest Speedo garb, jump into the nearest whirlpool (the term ‘hot tub’ & ‘whirlpool’ are mostly interchangeable) and enjoy the show. Don’t forget to grab some friends, – up to 8 people per tub – some silly bath toys and a waterproof camera to capture the madness.
Throughout September they’re showing ‘The Best of the Noughties’ movies, so here are your current choices:
- The Hangover – 17th Sept
- Team America, World Police – 18th Sept
- Dodge ball, A true underdog story – 19th Sept
- Finding Nemo – 20th Sept
- Bridget Jones Diary – 21st Sept
- Anchorman, The legend of Ron Burgundy – 22nd Sept
Over 8 years the company has evolved from a private party with 1 tub, to a 30 tub public screening event in London, New York and Bristol. During the summer the movies are show on a rooftop in East London, however everything moves indoors during the winter months, so you don’t have to worry about freezing your bits off. Also the hot tubs are filled with 40C water, which will keep you nice and warm.
Over 18’s only so bring your ID just to be safe. The venue is licensed so food and alcohol are available to buy, but must be consumed on the premise, and no you can’t BYO.
The Place: Rockwell House, 10-14 Hewett Street, Shoreditch, EC2A 3NN
What to bring:
Swimwear, a towel, a plastic bag for the wet bits, some dry clothes, flip flops, silly (not rude) toys, inflatables, wigs, hats etc, waterproof camera, some cash and a smile.
