The Shutter Island Experience
Time Out says
Quarantine Station will be the appropriately spooky setting for this terrifying investigation of a criminally insane island
Martin Scorsese’s 2010 psychological thriller Shutter Island has nightmare-inducing qualities that will make it an adaptable theme for this immersive cinema experience. This November, Beyond Cinema will take this unsettling story to Sydney’s Q Station, hosting a kind of haunted house experience which follows Shutter Island’s plot before a screening of the film.
Brave guests will be ferried from Circular Quay to the venue (which has its own fair share of ghosts and gruesome history) that will replicate the depraved Ashecliffe Hospital for the evening. Here they’ll meet US marshal Teddy Daniels and his partner Chuck Aule (unfortunately not played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Mark Ruffalo) and explore the caverns of Shutter Island (aka Q Station) as they uncover the corrupt characters and mystery behind the disappearance of patient Rachel Solando.
After climbing the cliffs and investigating the darkest off-limits corners of the hospital, the group will convene for a screening of the film, and finally figure out what’s going on in the lighthouse. There’ll be a cash bar to purchase nerve-steadying drinks and food packages also available for the three sessions.
Pray that a storm doesn’t set in and prepare your running shoes, should everything go awry on this chilling excursion.
