Films on Fridges Pop-up Cinema in Hackney Wick

Films on fridges is a pop-up cinema in Hackney Wick, projecting an eclectic set of sport-themed films onto a wall of fridges near Hackney Wick.

"The project was inspired by the disappearance of East London's 'Fridge Mountain' - an enormous pile of discarded fridges which previously occupied the London 2012 Olympic site. Towering nearly 20 feet tall, the largest 'Fridge Mountain' in all of Europe became a bizarre sculpture in the East London landscape. 
Films on Fridges resurrects this industrial icon in the form of a playful and interactive outdoor pop-up cinema. In celebration of the upcoming Olympics, the cinema will screen films athletic in nature."
