While drive-in movie theaters are all the rage in the age of coronavirus, a new method of socially distant film-viewing is headed to the Queen City for a pop-up this September.

Beyond Cinema, an Australian-based event company that hosts immersive cinema-inspired pop-ups, is bringing their unique floating theater to Cincinnati from Sept. 23-27, featuring both "golden oldies" and newer films and offering reservations for 12 to 24 mini boats that seat eight guests each. (They have yet to reveal the body of water upon which you'll be floating.)

"Tickets will require you to purchase the whole boat to ensure that groups will be seated with friends and family only, and to allow for social distancing on and between boats," the event page explains.

They are currently accepting pre-registrations online and will be offering ticket info and movie line-ups to those who have signed up. 

According to the event page, there will be free popcorn for ticket holders, and they will have other food and drinks available for purchase prior to hoppin' in your boat. 

Other pop-ups are scheduled for Austin, Philadelphia, Columbus and Cleveland.
