Take your character seriously

Arrive promptly at your allocated time and you’ll be given a specific mission. Once you’ve completed that, you can break away and do your own thing, including finding new adventures or just visiting the bar and getting some food.

This site isn’t as big as some of the previous Secret Cinemas so there's no excuse not to check out every room. Chat to everyone, ask questions, join other groups, open random doors and when you hear commotion, head over to watch key scenes played out.

Get a good seat

This time the screening is a slightly different format from usual. Head in as soon as the doors open and nab a seat near to the middle of the room to get closer to the action.
