Secret Cinema

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In a unique fusion of film and live acting all shrouded under a brilliant cloak of mystery, Secret Cinema is the new revolutionary film event for movie lovers. It’s an interactive cinematic experience which pays tribute to some of the best cult film classics of our time – but shh, you musn’t tell anyone!

The whole premise of Secret Cinema is that right up until the last minute, you don’t actually know where you’re going or what you’re going to see. Members are led on a sort of cinematic treasure trail on the run up to the screening, during which you must collect cryptic clues to try and decipher the theme for the evening. Elaborate instructions signalling where to meet and what to wear are emailed/tweeted/Facebooked beforehand and obscure riddles are endless, making the whole thing feel slightly like you’ve been plunged into a secret service operation.

Movie classics are screened in fairly mundane London locations which have been transformed into weird and wonderful cinematic worlds, inspired by the chosen film. Upon arrival you are immediately immersed into the performance with open arms (willingly or unwillingly) as you mingle with characters from the film who roam the venue and act out snippets of the story, offering further pivotal clues as to what on screen delight you may be able to expect that night.

Secret Cinema gatherings occur monthly, and previous screenings have included Blade Runner, Lawrence of Arabia and One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. So, if the idea of taking a seat to enjoy one of your favourite films whilst surrounded by camels and belly dancers in the heart of the Alexandra Palace sounds slightly more tempting than that familiar indent in your sofa, get yourself involved!

Tinker Tailor Soldier Sighhh

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cannot wait to see this.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is the chillingly stylish screen adaptation of John le Carré’s much celebrated British spy novel. The story centres around disgraced British spy George Smiley who is lured out of spy retirement to track down a suspected Soviet mole. Much sneaky sleuthy double-dealing ensues.

The cast is packed full of British gems including Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Mark Strong and Tom Hardy (lord serve him up to me on a plate.. allow the creepy blonde mop) and the 70s styling is impeccable.

I love a bit of espionage. The word literally makes me tremble. When I was growing up my dad was always telling me I should set my sights on MI5 (must be my inherently devious nature). I had a good old go at the online application form a few years ago… 40 mins later, I was defeated. That thing is LONG!

Check the super slick trailer and get excited.
