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.
