The Floating Cinema: Barge Repurposed into Theater

The pilot Floating Cinema 2011 project navigated the waterways of the Olympic host boroughs during summer 2011. Designed by Hackney based architects Studio Weave and programmed by Somewhere, the customised narrow boat hosted a varied and vibrant programme of free on board screenings, quirky canal tours, talks and workshops including tours into the Olympic Park prior to the London 2012 Olympic Games hosted by writer Iain Sinclair, comedian Holly Burn and comedy writer Susie Donkin. The Floating Cinema also presented larger scale outdoor screenings to bankside audiences including a fancy dress screening of Fantastic Mr Fox outside the Three Mills studios where the animation was created.
