What’s this? More outdoor cinema? Yip! Folly for a Flyover is a pop up building hosting a six week programme of waterside cinema, performance and play. Hand-built with local, reclaimed and donated materials, the Folly gives the illusion of a building trapped under the motorway.

along on Saturdays and Sundays from 24 June the folly. From 2pm free drop-in workshops and activities will fill the folly, from bug hotel building using Olypmic Park waste materials with Capital Growth through to a performance from the 30 piece East London Brass Band and a spectacular family party hosted by Disco Loco.

On Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, the building’s over-sized outdoor steps will double as an auditorium to host a programme of screenings and performances, from animation classics including early Disney and the anime blockbuster, Akira, through to experimental films including 2001 Space Odessy, Tron (1982) with a live re-mixed sound track and George Meilier’s Trip to the Moon with a live score programmed in partnership with the Barbican’s Watch Me Move exhibition. For full programme, please see the Folly for a Flyover website.

Like a giant construction-kit, the folly will be hand-built from simple components over the period of a month by a team of volunteers. It will be disassembled at the end of the summer and the components will find new uses across the local area.
