Films on Fridges
Pieces of bizarre landmark and sculpture known locally as Fridge Mountain, Europe’s old Largest fridge waste site that occupied the fringes of East London’s industrial landscape in Hackney Wick and Fish Island have recently been recovered by social space consultancy duo Matt and Linsey of Scout Ltd. Collaborating with a team of architects from London’s Metropolitan University, remnants of the 20 ft sculpture have been transformed into a temporary pop-up cinema screen scheduled to air Wednesday July 27th 2011 at 8pm. Tickets are available to buy below and online and chances to experience a remarkable take on the delivery of open aired cinema are for a limited period only.
