London, England — Like watching movies but want a different kind of viewing experience? Check out the hot tub cinema in London's east end. It's located on a rooftop in Hackney. Movie-goers can relax in a hot tub while watching a film projected on to a big screen. Each tub holds eight people, so customers can watch the movie with strangers or reserve a hot tub to share with their friends.
"We wanted to watch a movie. We wanted to use the hot tub, and we just thought why don't we project it out the kitchen window onto a bed sheet on the washing line and see what the results will be, and that was how it was born," explains Asher Charman, one of the inventors of the hot tub cinema.
For some, the film doesn't seem to matter much as they enjoyed drinks and good company. A paralympic gold medalist chose the hot tub cinema as a place to celebrate.
