The Floating Cinema

The Floating Cinema is a unique mobile arts hub bringing educational and cultural activity to audiences in London and beyond. Funded by Arts Council England, The Legacy List, BFI and Canal & River Trust, this unique custom-built contemporary canal boat features a flexible cinema auditorium space, viewing deck and environmentally-friendly bio-fuel engine. Since 2011, the project has engaged over 22,776 visitors with workshops, floating tours, open air screenings and educational events. 89 per cent of visitors surveyed in 2014 strongly agreed that Floating Cinema helped them appreciate London’s waterways as spaces for recreation and cultural activity.
