Less Than Zero: who wants to watch a film projected onto a load of fridges?

If you live in the Hackney area and have a love of films that's matched by both an undying admiration for the common fridge's continued contribution to society and a sadness at how the Olympic urban renewal programme has come at the expense of a hideous eyesore, then Films On Fridges is the event you've been waiting for. Starting tomorrow, Wednesday 27th July, Films On Fridges will adding to the lively pop-up cinema scene by projecting a season of classic and new sports films onto a recreation of east London's infamous Fridge Mountain, a 20ft-high stack of discarded fridges which used to call the site of the new Olympic home.

FOF kicks off with a sold-out screening of Rocky, then follows it up with the likes of Cool Runnings (duh), Escape To Victory, Rio Breaks, Saint Etienne's What Have You Done Today, Mervyn Day? and the premiere of Pelada, the SXSW-wowing documentary which looks at how the love of football veers towards being a faith that can help people around the world cope with hardship *points to trailer below*
