As the worldwide effort to contain the coronavirus continues, we're all trying to get used to a new normal.

Over the last couple of months, many of our lives have been greatly altered; working from home has become typical for some, hobbies have been put on hold, rendered impossible by social distancing and face masks are a common sight when one walks down the street.

As such, we're having to innovate new and interesting ways to keep ourselves entertained as the months wear on. By this point, I have an encyclopedic knowledge of every single Netflix category and its contents. I've made endless sourdough starters, baked banana bread, read a book (yes, a whole book!) and even taken up jogging for some tenuous reason.

Yet, as things begin to tentatively open up, companies are starting to come up with new ways to bring our favorite pastimes back.

For instance, Insider reports that in Paris a beautiful floating cinema is set to open, replete with socially distant boats so moviegoers can bob along on the water as they watch their favorite flicks.

Every year, Paris Plages - an annual event organized in the French capital -  creates temporary beaches along the Seine and the Bassin de la Villette during the summer months. This year, to celebrate the event, cinema chain Mk2 has collaborated with Häagen-Dazs to create Cinéma sur l'Eau ( which translates as cinema on the water).

A translated description of the event on the Que Faire Paris website reads;

"Notice to moviegoers! You may have the chance to participate in the first cinema on water which will take place on July 18 for the opening of Paris Plages. On the program: a free film projection from a boat on the Bassin de la Villette. An unusual cinema experience that marks the opening of the summer season."

Parisians can enter a raffle for free tickets here.
