Bonsoir! Secret Cinema's 'Moulin Rouge!' opened last night in London

Ellie Walker-Arnott

A top secret venue in east London has been transformed into the famous Parisian dance club the Moulin Rouge for Secret Cinema's latest run, which kicked off last night.

Come what may, lovers (friends and housemates etc) spent Valentine's evening at the first night of the new immersive cinema experience, which takes ticket holders to the hedonistic heights of the 1890s. Tickets are still on sale for a number of dates between now and the end of April - and if you want to know what to expect from the night, look no further than social media. 

Photos are banned inside the event itself but that hasn't stopped Londoners from snapping photos of their impressive costumes:
