Secret Cinema is about to get a whole lot darker by entering the genre of horror, with Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later the next film to get the Secret Cinema treatment.
Often considered to have reinvigorated the zombie genre, 28 Days Later stars Cillian Murphy as Jim, a bicycle courier who awakes from a coma to find that a virus has spread amongst the populace, all but resulting in complete societal collapse. The narrative then unfolds to follow the journey of Jim as he struggles to come to terms with what has happened and, ultimately, survive in a London that has been torn apart by the infected.
This show will also be an opportunity to act as the nationwide launch of Secret Cinema at this scale. As well as the shows in London, another secret city will also become a home for the experience.
Andrew Macdonald, producer of 28 Days Later said:“Secret Cinema never fails to amaze with their experiences, and it’s exciting to see them tackle their first ever horror. London prepare.”
Meanwhile Fabien Riggall, Founder and Creative Director of Secret Cinema said:“Secret Cinema is excited to step into the world of horror with Danny Boyle’s 28 Days Later, a true British horror classic – we look forward to creating a suitably frightening and exhilarating experience. Secret Cinema’s expansion over the last nine years has been remarkable, we’ve now created experiences in New York and Berlin, as well as the many in London. But this will be a turning point for us as we embark upon our very first UK nationwide production.”
Secret Cinema returns from the 14th April until the 29th May, with tickets on sale now through the Secret Cinema website: http://www.secretcinema.org/. More details of the location for 28 Days Later will be revealed in due course.
