      Forget Netflix and chill: Hot Tub Cinema Club is officially making “hot tub and chill” a thing when it comes to town for a series of boozy, hot-tub film screenings this May.

      Having successfully run similar events in cities throughout Australia and Europe, the Sydney-based group is bringing its popular 19-plus movie nights to Vancouver, where attendees can enjoy a film from the comfort of one of 20 hot tubs. Servers will be on hand to take orders and deliver alcoholic beverages.

      Set dates and locations have yet to be announced, though organizers confirm that six screenings will take place in downtown Vancouver—in close proximity to a bar with a liquor license—during May. A maximum five people are allowed in each hot tub.

      Tickets are $40 each and will be released in either late March or early April. There will be 100 tickets available for each showing.

      Additional information, including film selections and locations, will be available on Hot Tub Cinema Club’s website closer to May. For now, you can sign up for pre-release tickets online.
