A brand new Floating Cinema will be launched at the end of July. The barge will do more than screen films, and will also host workshops, events and canal tours on east London's waterways. The 2013 theme will be Extra-Ordinary and events scheduled are many and diverse, with all tickets available through the website from 1 July.



The new boat will barge through some of London's canals and beginning at the Open East Festival in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, before sailing off to a commission on the Regent's Canal exploring the facts and folklore of London's waterways. Another one of the August events will be when the vessel drops anchor alongside Granary Square, King's Cross, to take part in the Mayhem Film Festival's Horror Weekender .



Sailing on into September the barge will moor at the City Road Lock in Islington as part of the Angel Canal Festival . Later in the month will see the Floating Cinema alongside Queen Mary, University of London at Mile End as part of the Open House London , where you will be able to watch a variety of screenings on the Open Boat. The final weekend of September will take place in the Limehouse Basin and will be a collaboration between the boat and the Guerrilla Science Team in an exploration of science combined with music, art and play.



Canal boats may face a speed restriction of 4 knots, but the Floating Cinema's packed programme of events feel as if the boat will have to operate at breakneck speed to accommodate the full summer programme.
