Star Lane DLR

4pm: Zine-making workshop

7pm-11pm: Film show

A proper Exploding Cinema show in London’s coolest niche: the
unbelievable gem that is Cody Dock, nestled within one of London’s lost pockets of industrial heartland.

The show starts early with a zine-making workshop, and as the sun dips between the gasworks and the semi-submerged geodesic dome we’ll fire up the barbecue and slap on four hours of the latest independent and underground short films on board the River Princess, an actual boat kitted out with screening room, bar and outside pavilion deck.

How do we find these places? Well, sometimes they find us, and now it’s your turn to find us both, only five minutes from the DLR and in another world entirely.
