The highly anticipated Dive In Cinema certainly made a 'splashing' success with the inaugural event attracting hundreds of people.
Maitland Events coordinator Adam Franks said organisers were blown away by the success of city's first dive in cinema, which was held on Friday at East Matland Aquatics Centre.
"it was really good. Considering it was the first one, we were really pleased with the result," he said.
"It was perfect weather. We had close to 250 people in attendance. The in pool seats sold out before the event.
"We had a really well-behaved crowd and everyone was really excited to have something happening at East Maitland Aquatics Centre."
People who didn't the first dive in cinema still have two weeks to get along and be part of the festivities.
Mr Franks said it was too early to tell if dive in cinema events will be part of the city's summer program but the success so far was promising.
"We still have two weeks of the pilot ... but it's been great so far," he said.
"Sales have been good for the the next two events as well." Along with the movie, there will also be a silent disco, food trucks, volleyball and lawn games, as well as free swim time for all tickets holders before the movie starts.
The next session will be held on January 17, and will be screening the Pixar favourite Finding Nemo.
In pool and out of pool tickets will be available for $10 and $5 respectively. Tickets are available from Ticketek.
