Ever wanted to be inside your favorite film? Secret Cinema is London’s biggest kept secrets and one of its most exiting attractions if you’re a movie fanatic. A new concept of understanding cinema that will make 3D cinema seem like VHS.
Born in 2004, Secret Cinema is an immersive experimental film company that started as some kind of pop-up cinema with an authentic ambience, but it quickly became much more. With better funding, company director Fabien Riggall converted Secret Cinema into something much bigger. Gus Van Sant’s Paranoid Park was recreated in one of London’s disused railway tunnels, with half pipes and skateboarders, leaving visitors totally amazed.
The concept has since grown, having staged all kinds of films in secret London locations, from Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, Emerich Pressburger’s Red Shoes (watch video) to Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel. Inside the Secret Cinema event we can even find The Future Paradise Dinner, a secret restaurant within the event were we’ll be able to enjoy food cooked by star chefs.
Registered users get the information via email about the secret location not long before it is staged, and are given information on how to purchase the tickets, to enter an exclusive experience. The experience has even had its spin offs in places like New York and Kabul.
The venue’s next adventure is one of the most celebrated across the world. Rigall’s company will be screening Robert Zemerick’s Back to the Future. Set in 1985, Martin McFly fans willbe able to travel to 2015 and 1955 America and enjoy a live music act that will be chosen by a Battle of the Bands contest and even take part in a Prom Dance in a nearby venue. Shows will be taking place in a secret London location from the 24th July to the 10th August 2014.
