A hot tub – one of the best ways to relax… a cult movie – bring it on, but the two together? A match made in heaven!
The ‘Tub Tropicana Tour’ from the Hot Tub Cinema crew is back again this year and looks to be another popular event for them. A brilliant pop up idea, which was launched in 2006 as a private party for friends in Exeter and turned into a public event with their first one in Hackney in 2012. They have since had successful shows in London, New York and Ibiza and this year’s tour will cover six UK cities and one major European city.
Each tub holds six people and has it’s own tub waiter to bring you whatever you want from the bar, and popcorn too! Of course bubbles seems like the sensible option here, to drink of course.
The pop up venues are great too – in London (May 6th – 10th) they are taking over the former Shoreditch Underground Station, just off Brick Lane, which was closed in 2006 and auctioned by Transport for London in February 2011, renovated and converted into a fabulous 300 square meter arts and events space. Bristol’s venue (29th May – 2nd June) is Paintworks, a thriving artistic community in buildings developed from the derelict remains of a former paint factory. More venues will be announced soon.
The films have been chosen with fun in mind and Pretty Woman (best film ever!), Grease, Top Gun, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and Rocky Horror Show are our top picks. In fact this is something I can see myself going along to every night!
