Secret Cinema to launch Romeo + Juliet event tickets 18 May, promising to bring you to Verona Beach this summer


Seemingly not content with letting Backyard Cinema play Baz Luhrmann's Romeo+Juliet in an immersive event cinema setting (they book a church and an entire choir), Secret Cinema are getting in on the action too with this just-announced limited run. Promised is an outdoor, summer festival-type experience taking place (once more) in a secret location, transformed for a limited time into the colourful world of Verona Beach from the movie. Will this deliver? Or will yet a barrage of yet more articles criticising the hefty ticket prices vs the actual experience be Secret Cinema's fate this summer? Its certainly a safe, crowd-pleasing choice of film, so high sales are no doubt ensured. Get thee to their mailing list to get early access to ticket sales from Tuesday 15th May at 12pm (BST), 72 hours before everyone else.

Tickets start from £49 (+ booking fees).
