St Katharine Docks

Dirty Dancing and Dunkirk are set to follow live screening of Wimbledon taking place at St Katharine Docks next to Tower Bridge.

These are two of the raft of classic films being screened on a floating pontoon at the marina and historic docks when the tennis finishes.

The two-week summer ‘Floating Film’ festival starts July 16, the day after tennis fans watch the grand final on the pontoon screen.

Movies include The Post, The Greatest Showman, Back to the Future and The Beach as well as the Dirty Dancing and Dunkirk classics.

Screenings start 7pm with two family shows on Saturday and Sunday, July 21 and 22, starting 2pm. The full programme and £12 tickets are online.

The docks are currently live-screening from Wimbledon until Sunday. A bar is being added on board the pontoon for the semi-finals and finals weekend, with traditional Pimms and strawberries on its menu.
