Free film screenings, events and performances aboard a floating cinema in EastLondon this summer.


The Floating Cinema in London

Climb aboard a converted canal boat for free entertainment as The Floating Cinema navigates the waterways of the Olympic boroughs.

The 12-seater auditorium will show special footage and film shorts as well as offering canal tours, talks and workshops.

There will also be some larger scale outdoor film events for canal-side audiences.

The Floating Cinema Programme

The project kicks off on 1 July with a free event outside Lea Rowing Club with DJs, live music, water-themed film footage and film shorts made by teenagers in the Olympic host boroughs.

The rest of the programme includes film screenings at Shoreditch Festival, a canal trip into the Olympic Park with author Iain Sinclair and guided tours of the East End’s green spaces.


Floating Cinema Open Thursdays: Turn up between 2-8pm on Thursdays during July and August and you can meet the crew and watch unique film footage.

All events are free but booking for tours and performances is essential.

The Floating Cinema is part of Create11.
