Float-in movies are a boater’s delight

The flotilla of watercraft that tied up one evening on Minnesota’s Lake Minnetonka held boaters who weren't just there to swim and grill out. As night fell, a silver crescent of moon sparkled above the 40-foot-wide movie screen mounted on a barge at Big Island, and FM radios on boats reverberated with the sound of jet engines as "Top Gun" played on the floating screen.

The second annual event was dreamed up by a local boat dealership and the family-friendly attraction seems to be a hit.
