What is it?

Electronic Theatre ‘makes screen time social’. What does that mean? Well, you step inside a LightBox pod and go on a 30 or 60-minute immersive adventure alongside all of your buddies. Better, we think, than sitting at home alone on the iPad. Unlike VR experiences, you won’t be weighed down by bulky equipment, but you will benefit from the latest in projection mapping, touch screen and motion tracking technology, not to mention some cracking tunes. Oh, and you have to work together – so leave any workplace grudges at the door and go have fun. 

Where it is?

You’ll find Electronic Theatre on the Southbank at Arch 3, 83 Scoresby Street. The central location makes it ideal to combine with festive drinks on the town, a late dinner or an afternoon’s shopping under the Christmas lights (all experiences are suitable for ages 8 and over). The only issue is deciding when you’re ready to leave the LightBox...

Why should I go?

Electronic Theatre currently have two great Interactive Adventures - and you’re going to want to try them both. ‘Alien Aptitude Test’ zooms you back to 1984 to an alien-infested London. Your alien overlords have started grading humans from E- to A+ (abit like Santa, but more scary). Get a good grade and you’ll be treated nicely, get a bad one and things don’t look too sunny. ‘Rescue the Royals’ zaps forward to 2026 when the constitutional monarchy are no more and everything has been turned into one giant game show. Can you rescue her Maj from the captors?

Competition time!

Enter the Electronic Theatre Christmas Stocking Sweepstake for your chance to win a 60-minute Adventure of your choice for you and up to five friends. Simply head to and enter your name and email before December 31. The lucky winner will be picked at random out of the stocking by the Electronic Elves…

Remember, you can bring five friends, so get them to enter too and you’ll have a higher chance of winning!
