    If you have your own hot tub cinema, watch one of these flicks in your spa for extra fun!

    1. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

    Hot Tub Scene: In this humorous classic, Ferris and his girlfriend, Sloane, relax in a hot tub after an adventurous and expertly executed day off from school. Unfortunately, the conflicted Cameron, Ferris’ friend, opts to spend time in the pool instead of joining the couple in the spa. While Ferris and Sloane soak their troubles away in a soothing spa, Cameron worries over his impending punishment. If you’re in the mood for a carefree, funny movie, check this one out.

    Recreate This Scene: Take a day off work or wait until the weekend to spend an entire day with your loved one. Make sure it’s packed full of fun and exciting activities, such as having lunch at a fancy restaurant, going to a sports game and/or visiting an art museum. After your long and busy day, slip into your hot tub with your partner and talk the rest of the evening away.

    2. Hot Tub Time Machine

    Hot Tub Scene: If you’re in the mood for a crazy, off-the-wall experience, Hot Tub Time Machine is the movie to see. The plot is driven by a hot tub, but it’s no ordinary hot tub. Rather, it’s one that transports the main characters back to the ‘80s after they spill an energy drink on its controls. A group of old friends who are unsatisfied with their lives get together at a ski resort that holds a lot of memories for them. They attempt to melt their troubles away in a hot tub, but instead are taken back in time for the chance to change their future.

    Recreate This Scene: Though many of us wouldn’t mind taking some years off of our age by being transported back in time, pouring drinks on your hot tub controls isn’t the way to do it. Instead, invite some of your longtime friends over for an evening in your spa. Reminisce about the good old days and share a few drinks. By the end of the night, maybe it will feel like you haven’t aged at all.

    3. About Schmidt

    Hot Tub Scene: Jack Nicholson won an Oscar in this comedy-drama for his portrayal of Schmidt, a widower who tries to find purpose in his life and reconnect with his daughter. While Schmidt is at his future son-in-law, Randall’s house, he throws out his back. Randall’s mother suggests that he soothes his injury in the hot tub with her, and he takes her up on that offer. He soon begins to relax and feel better. That is, until Randall’s mother takes off her clothes and joins him in the hot tub nude. His relaxed state quickly races away as he gets out of the tub, terrified.

    Recreate This Scene: We don’t think anyone would want to experience the horror that Schmidt goes through in this scene. So instead of recreating the entire scene, you can just recreate the first part. Whenever you’re feeling pain, step into your hot tub, sit down and let the warm water and jets work your pain away.

We see how the two characters meet each other and what they experienced during the first movie. At one point, Timon, Pumbaa and Simba relax in a bubbling hot spring or natural hot tub. You’ll have to watch the movie to see the hilarious outcome of this scene.

    Recreate This Scene: Your kids will love to pretend that you all are Timon, Pumbaa and Simba your hot tub. As long as they are over 10 years old, bring them into the spa with you, let them take the reins and act out the scene with them. They’ll have a blast.

  2. How to Make Your Own Hot Tub Cinema

    Leave a Comment

    What’s more relaxing than being entertained in a jetted hot tub? Not much. Music is one of the most popular forms of entertainment enjoyed in a spa, and ThermoSpas hot tubs’ deluxe sound system package has everything you need for an incredible audio experience. Along with music, watching movies is another great way to enhance your hot tub experience.

    In fact, watching movies in a hot tub has proven to be such a pleasant experience that people have capitalized on it. Hot Tub Cinema is the latest craze in movie-viewing experiences. It involves watching a movie on a big screen while hanging out in a hot tub with a group of your friends. Tickets for these events always sell out quickly, as there is a limited number of inflatable hot tubs available at each viewing and the only cities in which viewings occur on a regular basis are New York and London.

    Why pay to watch a movie in an inflatable hot tub when you can create your own Hot Tub Cinema in your house or backyard? Creating a movie-viewing experience in your hot tub can be very simple, and is sure to make your house or backyard a popular place for parties and get-togethers. From cheaper, non-HD setups to high-quality, home theater televisions, there are hot tub cinema options for almost every budget and taste. We’ve listed some of the most popular and efficient ways to watch movies in your tub below.

    Spa-Mounted Televisions

    Spa-mounted televisions are excellent high-end upgrades for modern spas. They are specifically designed to be mounted on the edge of any hot tub or spa, and installation is very simple. Spa-mounted televisions should be waterproof and come with a waterproof remote controller to allow you to have complete control over your viewing experience while you’re in the tub. If your hot tub is outside, make sure the TV screen is weatherproof as well.

    Once your spa-mounted TV is set up, you should be able to wirelessly connect it to your home media or connect it with the cabling of your choice. Because spa-mounted televisions are specifically made for hot tub viewing, they are one of the easiest ways to transform your hot tub area into a hot tub cinema.

    Wall-Mounted Televisions

    If you want a massive screen to watch movies on while you’re in the hot tub, a wall-mounted television might be a better option for you than one that’s mounted on the spa. A strong enough mount can hold a full home-theater-style screen for your hot tub viewing experience. These televisions can be mounted directly to the wall of your house, or to the hot tub gazebo.

    There are a lot more options for wall-mounted televisions than there are for televisions made specifically to be mounted on the spa. If your hot tub is outside, it’s important to buy a television that is weatherproof, and if the screen is mounted close to the tub, it should be waterproof as well. Although wall-mounted televisions may not come with a waterproof controller, you can always buy a waterproof universal TV remote.


    Projectors can be a fun and inexpensive way to transform your hot tub area into a hot tub cinema. If you choose this option, make sure to get a projector that can connect to your computer or DVD player, or buy one that has a built-in DVD player or iPhone dock. The great thing about projectors is that they can be as simple or as high-tech as you want.

    If you’re looking to create the ultimate hot tub cinema, you can buy an HD projector and a high-quality screen for a gorgeous movie-viewing experience. Or, if you’re looking for an inexpensive way to transform your hot tub space into a hot tub cinema, you can buy a simple, non-HD projector and project movies onto a white wall or sheet. Projectors are easily transported, so you can use them to watch movies wherever you would like. If your hot tub is outside, just remember to bring in your projector after you’re done watching your movie.

    Hot tub cinemas are great for parties and get-togethers, a romantic night with your loved one, family nights or for a quiet night alone. No matter which option you choose to transform your hot tub area into a hot tub cinema, you’re sure to have a great time with it. Once you’re ready to watch movies in your tub, find out which films you should watch first by reading our movie recommendations post.
