Underground Cinema – Children of Men

Underground Cinema – Children of Men
 
Underground Cinema - Factory Theatre - December 2012

The Underground Cinema is a secret cinema event held at undisclosed locations in Sydney and Melbourne.   Attendees purchased their tickets in advance without knowing what movie will be shown or where the secret location is.  The location is divulged just prior to the event taking place, with hints and clues of the forthcoming movie being provided to cinema goers as they arrive at the secret location.  Event organisers go to considerable lengths to immerse the attendees into the world by recreating scenes and sets of the movie – leaving people attempting to guess the movie right up until the movie that the film rolls.

I attended a recent screening of 2006’s epic “Children of Men” held at Marrickville’s Factory theatre.  As you can see from the images, the Underground Cinema team had recreated the grounds of the theatre into a 2027 UK where civilization is on the brink of collapse as humanity faces the grim reality of extinction.
