An idea is being floated for erecting a giant cinema screen on a quayside pontoon at St Katharine Docks for summer film fans.
It would be the return to a successful 'floating film festival' from previous years which drew thousands of movie fans to the historic docks by the Tower of London.
The marina is planning a fortnight of top films on the floating pontoon in July, it has been revealed this week.
Movies already lined up for the big screen include hits like Mary Poppins Returns, A Star is Born, Bohemian Rhapsody, Stan and Lorrie and musicals such as Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again and The Greatest Showman.
Screenings at £12 a ticket begin at 7pm throughout the 'movie fortnight' of July 16-28, with two additional weekend screenings at 2pm on Saturday and Sunday.
