Leave it to the French to come up with this innovative idea. After all, they did give the world berets, croissants and French fries ;) Seriously though, this is probably one of the wickedest ideas ever.
Since Life of Pi is movie about a young Indian man shipwrecked in the ocean, someone came up with the brilliant idea to hold a movie screening involving water. Audience members boarded boats inside Paris’ indoor swimming pool, Piscine Pailleron, to watch the film. Wearing 3-D glasses and life preservers, Parisians immersed themselves in the spirit of the flick.
While probably not the most comfortable way to watch a movie, the unique experience would definitely make up for it. It’s like going to a drive-in with your car, except it’s a boat and you’re on water. As the movie-goers left the screening, “magnifique” and “formidable” were the consensus of the evening. Check out a few photos from the event along with a video. I’m surprised no one fell in the water. At least they didn’t show it in the clip ;)
