I’m sure we are starting to feel au fait with pop-up cinemas in unusual locations, but if you haven’t heard of this project then it’s worth checking out. This summer – navigating the waterways of east London through the five Olympic host boroughs – is a floating cinema conceived by Somewhere artists Nina Pope and Karen Guthrie, and architecture practice Studio Weave. They have transformed a narrowboat into an elegant, linear cinema as these pictures show – but is this the start of Pimp My Ride for the river boat community?
The Floating Cinema will play host to some intimate screenings, as well as mooring up at different locations for larger-scale screenings, talks and music events, including readings by Ian Sinclair and a DJ set by St Etienne. Pretty neat.
