People who aren’t afraid of simmering in other people’s muck… hello.
The hot tub concept is one of those two-sides-of-the-coin deals. Either you’re way into it, or you think it’s pretty gross. There’s no middle ground.
If you happen to be in the former category, then boy are you ever in luck. With winter looming large and grey over much of the Australian continent and temperatures are soon set to plummet to a knee-trembling sub-seventeen degrees (*whimper*), Sydney has some mild relief on the way in the form of Hot Tub Cinema.
The concept, which has already done the rounds of London to what appears to be reasonable success, is fairly goods-as-advertised: You, your significant other, and other people near and dear to you, pile into an inflatable hot tub somewhere on a chilly roof, where you get righteously sozzled in steaming water while a film plays on a portable big screen nearby.
Although if you’re a cinephile hell-bent on enjoying and appreciating the flick, this might not be the venue for you if footage from the London iterations are anything to go by:

Regardless, we do know that it is coming to Sydney at some point this winter to an “an exclusive rooftop venue.”
There will be four sessions of steamy viewing to get around, if all this sounds like a good time to you, with tickets sold on a first-come/first-served basis.
There’s no word just yet on the specific location, dates, or movies being shown. However, you can put your name down for pre-release tickets by signing up to the mailing list on their website.
A decent soak, a glass of champas, a hearty flick, and a potential case of pseudomonas aeruginosa folliculitis. Honestly, there’s probably worse ways to spend a winter’s night.
Probably.
