Films on Fridges: London’s Premiere Cinema Constructed from Abandoned Refrigerators

August 1, 2011

Former site of Hackney Fridge Mountain

Film on Fridges is an ongoing film festival in East London built primarily out of discarded refrigerators. The space was the former site of an enormous refrigerator dumping ground where the old appliances were stacked over 20 feet deep and could literally be seen from space (though arguably what can’t you see from space these days?).

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.

Films include Rocky, Chariots of Fire, and Cool Runnings, and by the looks of it many of the screenings are already sold out, so if you’re in London and want to catch a nice outdoor movie in a cinema constructed from refrigerators, this is your chance. Runs through August 13th. Read more over on the Guardian.
