Secret Cinema Calls Out for People Across the UK to Host Their Own Screening

Secret Cinema Presents Dead Poets Society - A Tribute to Robin Williams in Partnership with the mental health charity, Mind

To commemorate the tragic death of Robin Williams, Secret Cinema is staging a special one off charity screening of Dead Poets Society in partnership with the mental health charity, Mind this Friday evening, 15th August.

Secret Cinema is looking for partners to join them in hosting a screening that will happen simultaneously across the UK and beyond with a view to honouring the extraordinary spirit of Robin Williams and the urgent need to address an issue that concerns all, mental health.



The screening will be held at the Troxy on Commercial Road, East London and will start from 7.30pm. There will be live poetry, live music, performance, special guests and much more.

The cost of the show will be £25.00 per person and all profits will go to Mind (registered charity number 219830). Audience members must be 15 years and above. An In Memoriam short film remembering the work of Robin Williams will be screened, where audience members will be able to write their own condolences. 

The special screening in memory of Robin Williams will be encouraged to go nationwide and across Europe simultaneously at 8pm UK / 9pm CET.

To join to set up your own screenings outside London please contact Secret Cinema via [email protected]

Paul Farmer, Mind Chief Executive, said: “We are incredibly appreciative that Secret Cinema has decided to honour Robin Williams in this way. The funds raised from this event will help Mind to be there for the one in four people who have a mental health problem so they get the support they need and the respect they deserve."

Fabien Riggall, Founder and Director of Secret Cinema said: “We are looking for people everywhere to join us in staging a screening to honour the memory and amazing light of Robin Williams. All profits from our screening will go to Mind, a vital and brilliant charity supporting those suffering from mental health problems, and we encourage others to donate what they can as well. I see culture as therapy and a tonic. Robin Williams inspired so much in so many of us, I believe cinema should give back to those leading lights who give so much.”

About Secret Cinema 
Creating large-scale cultural experiences in abandoned spaces, Secret Cinema fuses film, music, theatre and installations. Audiences explore ultra-immersive worlds where fiction and reality blur.

In 2007, Secret Cinema pioneered the form ‘Live Cinema’ by introducing site-specific, immersive cultural experiences. Breaking films – and recently music albums – into their constituent parts and marrying narratives with play-along action, Secret Cinema is a unique participatory social experience. Fuelled by a desire to fill the void left by an over-saturated technological world, it invites audiences to lose themselves in serendipitous, imaginary environments that challenge the way we perceive culture and social interaction.

In early June 2014, Future Cinema Presents moved under the Secret Cinema brand umbrella as 'Secret Cinema Presents'. Now integral to the Secret Cinema brand, this strand will continue to present cult classics and new releases, revealing the film prior to the event.
