Folly for a Flyover

On Sunday night, we popped over to Hackney Wick for an outdoor cinematic experience!  The Folly for a Flyover team created a lovely wooden structure poking it's roof through the East and Westbound traffic on the A12.  

They hosted a slew of summer events and I meandered over for the last night, a screening of "Spirited Away", a Japanese Animated film.  Sadly, as it was a Sunday, I couldn't stay to the very end, and had to make a mammoth trek back to Camden (missed the last train).  I was told there were lanterns on the canal after the film finished, and magical boat rides.. next year, I'll make sure I go earlier on!

  1. Hey -we were there earlier on that same day! Trouble is, we were there before it even opened... oops.

    Unsurprisingly perhaps, we love Spirted Away, wish we had gone to see this in the evening!

    Nice pics C as alaways!

  2. Hey Joe,

    Great minds think alike! Hope to catch up with you guys soon... :)
