The only art that typically gets put up on refrigerators is children's, so parents can be reminded of how much potential their kids have as they're reaching for the Turkey Twizzlers that'll ensure that art's value goes up posthumously. Gracing those metal doors with more accomplished oeuvre: Films on Fridges.
Playing out over a three-week span that mirrors next year's Summer Games, on the junkyard site of a "fridge mountain" that will eventually be cleared for Olympics use, this popup cinema's projecting films onto a wall formed from the discarded chillers themselves -- classic sports movies only, so there'll be no Defrost/Nixon. Opening with Rocky (hopefully not how we'll be describing the actual Games), the rest of the lineup's scheduled to include all manner of inspirational fodder including Cool Runnings, Chariots of Fire, the Caine/Stallone classic Escape to Victory (football AND Nazis!), Space Jam, and the 1970s bodybuilding documentary Pumping Iron, in which Arnold Schwarzenegger was still decades away from pumping the lady who does his ironing. More docs include Fire in Babylon (cricket) and Pelada (football), plus one outlier about indie dance band Saint Etienne, who'll also DJ the screening from the nearby moored Hackney's Floating Cinema barge -- an idea so crazy, people accused the man who proposed it of being "high on Cracknell".
Although snacking plans haven't been finalized, they're aiming to provide popcorn along with some other TBC cine-cuisine, all to be washed down with "a plethora of booze" -- though of course sitting near a fridge watching movies and drinking is what's made you 21.2% fat.
