Films on Fridges turns trash into cinematic art

Films on Fridges 2

East London’s landmark Fridge Mountain – once the largest “mountain” of discarded refrigerators in Europe, towering an impressive 28 feet in height – was been lovingly resurrected and paid tribute to this summer. For three weeks, Hackney Picturehouse Cinema produced it’s Films on Fridges against the backdrop of the London 2012 Olympic Stadium.

In a tribute to the Olympic spirit, Films on Fridges presented a line up of sporting classics and UK premieres to present a truly distinct cinematic experience for those lucky enough to attend. Although the films weren’t projected directly on the refrigerators, this pop-up cinema featured classic movies including the original Rocky and the 2010 documentary Fire of Babylon.

Sadly, the creation of the London Olympics, Fridge Mountain became yet another victim of “progress” – bulldozed, then covered in landfill. But Films on Fridges was a brief yet fond reminder of that creative folks can turn one man’s “junk” into something very special that many can enjoy.
