It took volunteers one month to build the cinema from donated and reclaimed materials [6]. Completed on 24th of June, Folly for a Flyover was tucked into the gap between the east and west bound traffic of London’s A12 highway and will remain there for six weeks to provide daily waterside cinema, performances and plays.

During the day the structure will be used as a cafe, an event venue, and even a launching pad for recreational activities on the surrounding waterways. When the weather turns cool and their purpose here has “played out,” the already recycled materials [7] will be put to some other equally creative use.
