Sailing barge Repertor finds a new role as home for a cinema club

Floating Films website

Well, that’s a surprise. I learn from the The Society for Sailing Barge Research’s weblog that the well known 1920s steel-built sailing barge Repertor has found a new role as home for a cinema club based at St Katherine’s Dock, London.

I think it sounds fun. The information is here.

The not-for-profit film club folks say they intend to show a diverse selection of films with a social conscience, including shorts, features and documentaries, special screenings with live music accompaniment. There will also be talks, and part of the aim is to to help contribute to the survival of the barge fleet by raising the profile of the sailing barges. After each show, club-goers are invited to adjourn to the bar…

The club’s is 40, so the organisers recommend booking early by sending an email.
