Secret Cinema has been going for quite a few years now and specialise in a totally amazing film experience. This isn’t your average bums-on-seats multiplex affair. Oh NO. Instead you might find yourself transported to 1940s Vienna (in Farringdon, natch) for a screening of The Third Man, or into a futuristic warehouse to see Blade Runner. Even better is the fact that you won’t know what the film IS until you get there – although it’ll be a good’un. That’s why it’s called Secret Cinema. Makes sense, right? It’s a cult new movement, and we’re loving it.
Last night we were invited to Secret Cinema’s latest offering. We received mysterious emails detailing secret online missions and costumes we had to wear (see the sexy boiler suit above).
We were assigned a meeting point – a landmark in central London at 7pm (we aren’t giving it away in case you, dear readers, fancy attending!) and then we were whisked off to a top secret disused warehouse, where the fun and games began. In theme with the film (which we won’t reveal), we completed tasks, ate drank, and were merry. And scared. There were actors everywhere, and they were GOOD actors, too. We couldn’t tell who was in the audience, and who were the actors half the time. VERY WEIRD. Secret cinema is a mix of theatre and film all together – amazing.
Lazer ping pong. We can’t explain why in case it gives the film away, but how cool?
Basically, you should go. At the end of a night of performances from very talented actors, weird tasks, drinking and merrymaking, you get to settle intoin a comfy seat, with popcorn. And it’s an AMAZING film, too. Go!
