Floating Film Festival returns to London showing the best new flicks



This could be you (Picture: St Katharine Docks London)If you didn’t get a chance to watch some of the year’s biggest films in the cinema, fear not – you can now enjoy them on the big screen and you don’t have to do it in a dark room.
That’s because the Floating Film Festival is set to return to St Katherine Docks in London and will be featuring some absolute bangers.
You could be sipping on an Aperol Spritz under the sun, floating on a pontoon while swooning over the likes of Jason Mamoa, Hugh Jackman and Lady Gaga.
St Katharine Docks announced that it is welcoming back its hotly-anticipated festival, which will run for a fortnight on the floating pontoon as part of the company’s vibrant summer programmes.
Some of the films you can feast your eyes on include Oscar-winning faves such as A Star is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody, as well as musical numbers like Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again and The Greatest Showman.
It’s the perfect summer date.

The festival is only two weeks long (Picture: St Katharine Docks London)But what about sea sickness? Could watching a movie while floating give you a funny turn? The organisers think not.
‘The floating pontoon can float around the Docks as it is on the water,’ they told Metro.co.uk.
‘During the screenings, the pontoon is moored so visitors will experience a floating sensation whilst watching the film as it will be bobbing slightly in the water but will be attached to the dockside so won’t be physically moving around St Katharine.’
Screenings will begin at 7pm throughout the week, with two additional screenings at 2pm on Saturday and Sunday, for those who want to bring their families to the marina or enjoy the fun on the weekend.
Guests are invited to relax on bean bags and deckchairs while Benugo will provide drinks and snacks.
The folks at the docks are encouraging people to book early as slots go quickly due to the popularity of the festival.
Tickets are £12, and the full programme can be found below.
