With so many outdoor pop up cinemas in London the new ones need to do something different for people to sit up and take notice. The floating cinema is doing just that, showing short films aboard a customised narrow boat during the day, and when night falls, large-scale outdoor projections accompanied by live music & DJs.
Friday 1 July 7.30-10pm
outside the Lea Rowing Club,
Spring Hill, London E5 9BL
Free shuttle bus to and from Stamford Hill train station will run throughout the evening.
The Floating Cinema has been created by Hackney-based team of architects Studio Weave and artist duo Somewhere (Nina Pope and Karen Guthrie) to host a varied and vibrant programme of on-board screenings, quirky canal tours, talks and workshops.
