A Cinema on a Barge



The Slow Boat
We've got a great find for the Midlanders among us - a cinema on a barge. Yep, that's right...a floating cinema. A big screen on a canal. Just how fab is that?!

To celebrate artist Yto Barrada's exhibition at the fab Ikon in Birmingham, the gallery's unique and very, very cool Slow Boat is opening as a cinematheque. Moored just outside the National Sea Life Centre, we reckon you should pop down and give it a whirl - could cinema viewings get any more exciting?

The barge will be open for three weekends throughout May and June - just click here for a full listings programme, or call the Ikon Gallery on 0121 248 0708 to book tickets.
