Even though Japan is famously known for outdoor bathing, the concept of combining it with cinema actually originated in London, England. There, bathtub cinemas became so popular that they grew to include dozens of hot tubs (both 2-person and 4-person), open bars and surround sounds.


The 3 day Tokyo event will contain 12 hot tubs that comfortably hold 4 people each. Tickets will run 18,000 Yen (Approx $160) per tub.

The three blockbuster movies scheduled to air are Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle on August 17th, Baby Driver on August 18th and 2002’s Spider-man on August 19th.

What!?! NO JAWS!!!
