UP Projects' Floating Cinema navigated the waterways of the Olympic host boroughs of London during summer 2011. Created by Hackney-based architects Studio Weave and artist duo Somewhere (Nina Pope and Karen Guthrie), this extraordinary customised narrow boat hosted a varied and vibrant programme of free on-board screenings, quirky canal tours, talks and workshops. The Floating Cinema also presented larger scale outdoor film events for canal side audiences and informal drop-in Open Thursdays where you could meet the crew, relax and watch rare films selected especially for the Floating Cinema by Nina and Karen.
The Floating Cinema was a continuation of UP Projects' Portavilion programme of temporary pavilion commissions, this time for the waterways of east London. http://www.floatingcinema.info/
