Films on Fridges is a unique outdoor cinema experience in East London made from old refrigerators. The concept was thought up by Lindsey Scannapieco as a nod to ‘Fridge Mountain,’ the 20ft-high pile of discarded fridges that used to tower over Hackney until its removal a few years ago. The temporary cinema was created to celebrate the areas regeneration in time for the Olympics. Scannapieco was aided by her business partner Mat Triebner and Emma Rutherford, an architecture student from London Met University, who helped turn her vision into a reality.

The pop-up cinema has a large screen surrounded by fridges, a bar made from fridge parts and seats from fridge doors. A wall of fridge doors covered in fridge magnets frames the concession area and people can rearrange the letters to create words.

Films on Fridges will be open until August 13th and is screening films inspired by sports, including Rocky, Cool Runnings and Chariots of Fire, as a tribute the upcoming Olympic Games.
