Swimming at the movies

Novel cinema experience happening at Fort Dunlop.

Fort Dunlop 5

This May bank holiday is set to get steamy at the top of Birmingham’s Fort Dunlop as it launches the city’s first rooftop hot tub cinema from 22nd–24th May.

Super Spa Cinema will be an evening like no other as guests are invited to take a seat under the stars to enjoy an evening of experiential entertainment and cult cinema from the comfort of their own hot tub.

Upon arrival on top of Fort Dunlop’s 100 foot high iconic rooftop, guests will be greeted with beats from the Super Spa DJ, who will be entertaining the crowds before and after the screening. A host of themed activity and music will be sure to get guests in the mood. Moviegoers can slip into their swimsuits in the private changing room facilities before getting cosy in the hot tubs.

Friday 22nd May – Cocktail
Guests will be invited to take part in their very own Tom Cruise cocktail flairing competition for the chance to win two tickets to a performance of their choice at Fort Dunlop’s open-air theatre, later this year. The rooftop will be illuminated in true 80s neon style, with inflatable cocktails waiting for each guest in their hot tub.

Saturday 23rd May – Point Break
Think you can master the surf like Bodhi? Enjoy the thrills and spills of the waves on Fort Dunlop’s surfboard simulator. Dudes and dudettes must avoid a wipeout to be in with a chance to win two tickets to a performance of their choice at Fort Dunlop’s open-air theatre. There will also be masks and props for guests in their hot tubs so they can really get into character!

Sunday 24th May – Jaws
Test your skills on the hook-a-shark competition, and prepare to be scared as the hot tubs turn red in honour of this deep-sea adventure. Watch out for the odd inflatable limb as well!

Screening times for the weekend will be as follows:
Doors will open at 6:30pm, with the Super Spa DJ and activities from 6:30 – 8pm. The screening will commence at 8pm and the DJ will take to the decks again from 10-11pm.

For those looking to share the experience with friends, five person hot tubs will cost
£125 for the evening (£25 per person – including complimentary drink each). If you prefer things a little more romantic, the premium couples’ package includes your own personal hot tub for two, with two complimentary drinks each and front row seats for £100 (£50 per person). Single tickets are also available, for £25 each, which also include a complimentary drink.

Numbers are limited as there are only 30 hot tubs available to book for these exclusive events – be quick to avoid being left out in the cold! Tickets will go on sale on Monday, 16th March 2015 and can be purchased from the Fort Dunlop website.

Super Spa Cinema is just one of the sensational new events taking place at the iconic Fort Dunlop over the coming months, with live outdoor theatre, street food festivals and more set to be announced.
