Imagine this on the Hudson

The people behind the insanely detailed screening events for American Psycho, Zoolander, and more are about to outdo themselves. On August 27th, BBQ Films will bring their next movie event to the Hudson River—screening The Fifth Element on a yacht disguised as the luxury space liner Fhloston Paradise. The announcement was made at Videology last night during a sweded performance of the flick.

Organizers tell us: "The evening cruise will feature a screening of the movie, a themed performance from musical act “a place both wonderful and strange”, a Paradise photo booth, and some of Jean Paul Gaultier’s timeless fashions from the film. All guests are invited to attend in their futuristic finest, as they’ll be treated to a very special intermission." With your ticket (which will cost no more than $45) you'll also receive a complimentary themed cocktail.

Tickets for the event will be released the week of the 22nd, but you can sign up here now!
