Grab a star-crossed lover and get ready for a night of immersive cinema with the hotly anticipated Romeo & Juliet Secret Cinema run this summer.
‘Two households, both alike in dignity
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.’
Following on from the huge success of its previous productions, including Moulin Rouge, 28 Days Later and Ghostbusters, Secret Cinema has announced its largest and most ambitious show to date. Secret Cinema presents William Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet will see 5,000 people per night descend on a (secret) London location that will have been transformed into Verona Beach.
This is outdoor cinema with a twist. Expect live bands, artists, DJs, Gospel choirs and plenty of surprises throughout an evening exploring themes of peace, redemption and salvation.
‘All are called to create a truce between the warring houses of Montague and Capulet, all must come to crush a cup of wine in peace.’
Whichever side you choose, keep one thing in mind. All. Are. Punished.
8-25 August, Wednesday to Sunday
