This summer the Floating Cinema's London programme, journeyed beyond earth to explore our relationship with outer space; from imagined alternative worlds and the race for space travel to alien invasions!

An immersive space odyssey, the Extra-Terrestrial programme included open air screenings of sci-fi cult classics, a summer space school and a series of on-board talks which brought together scientists, writers and space enthusiasts. Weaving between the absurd and the factual, this exciting programme offered a timely commentary on contemporary issues surrounding the Earth's sustainability, the commodification of space and what it is to be an ‘alien’.

The Floating Cinema: Extra-Terrestrial is curated and produced by UP Projects and supported by Foundation for FutureLondon (the charity of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park), and King's Cross Central Limited Partnership.
