Secret Cinema In Partnership With Article 19 Presents: a Simultaneous Secret Screening to Protest Against Censorship


20 December 2014

CONFIRMED SCREENINGS IN LONDON, SAN FRANCISCO AND ROME

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

UK (London, San Francisco, Rome): To protest against the attack on freedom of expression that the threats against screenings of The Interview represents, Secret Cinema is staging a special one off Secret Screening this Sunday 21st December with all proceeds from the show going to global free speech charity Article 19.

Secret Cinema’s previous charity screening of Dead Poet’s Society in August 2014 raised over £24,000 for Mind the mental health charity.

Secret Cinema passionately believes  in the freedom to create and is looking for partners to join them in hosting a simultaneous screening across the Globe with a view to strengthen the resolve of filmmakers and artists against the threat of censorship, and to stand in solidarity with artists whose freedom of expression is routinely curtailed.

The film will remain secret for now. We ask all to wear dark suits and bring a small gift to give to a stranger.

The London screening will be held at a secret location in East London with doors opening at 18.30pm and we ask all attendees to keep locations a secret.

The cost of the show will be £25.00 per person and all proceeds will go to the global free speech charity Article 19. Audience members must be 15 years and above.

To show support please post #freedomtocreate

Tickets can be purchased here

The special screening in protest and solidarity will be encouraged to go worldwide simultaneously in Europe at 19.30 GMT / 21.00 CET. To join to set up your own screenings outside London please contact Secret Cinema via [email protected]

We will then reveal the film and more information on setting up your screening.

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.
