UP Projects just unveiled their new Floating Cinema - a mobile venue for cinephiles and movie-related events in London. Designed by Duggan Morris Architects, the floating cinema will host a series of open-air film screenings as part of the new “Extra-Ordinary” program, which seeks to animate the waterways of East London.
With its quirky name and vibrant colors, the Floating Cinema will host a variety of onboard screenings, large-scale outdoor films for bankside audiences, floating tours of the waterways, and educational projects created with local communities. The project is part of the “Extra-Ordinary” program of events developed in collaboration between UP Projects and film-maker artist duo Somewhere (Nina Pope and Karen Guthrie). The cinema’s onboard performances and tours will also be streamed live at the project’s website.
