“Hand-built with local, reclaimed and donated materials, the Folly draws influence from the surrounding red-brick buildings of Hackney Wick, posing as an imaginary piece of the area’s past, a building trapped under the motorway.”
This pop-up venue is situated on the banks of the canal in Hackney Wick, to show films, performances and plays for a 6 week run over the summer. The program starts with a different theme each week (fables, structures etc) and includes screenings of super gay sci-fi films such as ‘TRON + live score’, ‘Flash (ahaaaaa) Gordon’, Kubrick’s ‘2001 A Space Odyssey’ and short films from Hackney Wicked Festival.
There is also a cafe serving food and drinks and the chance to hire a boat for a paddle adventure down the canal for a mere £2. As well as some planned family activities. Check out the Folly for a Flyover website for more information and full event listings.
