The next Secret Cinema Presents will be….Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

Immersive cinema event company Secret Cinema today announced their next 'Secret Cinema Presents Event' : where the film is known in advance and shown in an elaborately constructed environment designed to mirror the film world. And the choice is….Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, or Episode V  if you want to be pedantic. It makes sense. This year will see the Star Wars film franchise, now under the new management of Disney, return to the big screen under the directorial eye of J.J. Abrams. The last Secret Cinema Presents event in 2014 was another crowd pleaser (don't they really have to be when you are charging over £50 for a ticket?): Back to the Future. Despite the delays in the Back to the Future event starting, which were blamed on the scale of the production, it seems Secret Cinema are nevertheless determined to go just as big, and maybe even bigger, this year. 

The event will run June-August 2015.

The details are below, written of course in a non-fourth wall breaking style:

For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter." Yoda

Earth is the system. We are seeking rebels from around the world to join the Rebel Alliance and head to a Secret City where they will be taken on a journey through the world of Star Wars

Secret Cinema presents Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in a secret London location from June 4th 2015. 

Look out for a secret code on forgotten buildings in the days to come which will lead to a secret portal.

We are gathering those that believe in the Force by reinstating the importance of romance, adventure and mystery in this high-speed world.

See our last adventure here.

Tickets will be available from Wednesday, 18th March 1300 hours.

May the Force be with you,
Secret Cinema
