Post-apocalyptic zombie thriller 28 Days Later is the latest movie to be staged by Secret Cinema, in its first foray into the horror genre.
Secret Cinema has drummed up a massive cult following for its immersive cinema concept, which usually asks participants to sign up to watch an unknown film in an undisclosed location.
They are asked to dress up in character and then get to live the movie before watching it on the screen.
Prepare to be chased by zombies in their adaptation of Danny Boyle’s 2002 British cult classic, starring Cillian Murphy as Jim, a bicycle courier who awakes from a coma to find that a virus has spread amongst the populace, resulting in complete societal collapse.
Fabien Riggall, founder and creative director of Secret Cinema has promised it will be a “suitably frightening and exhilarating experience”.
