But, soft, what light through yonder window breaks? Could it be the best event in London’s summer events calendar? Why yes – Secret Cinema is pulling out all the stops for Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Romeo + Juliet’, their biggest production yet. 5,000 people per night will descend on a secret outdoor location to enter a multi-layered recreation of Verona Beach, featuring live bands, artists, DJ’s, Gospel choirs and surprise performers. A million miles away from your average cinema event, Secret Cinema is an explosion of interactive theatre – your challenge will be to create a truce between the warring houses of Montague and Capulet, thus ceasing all civil unrest for the good of fair Verona. Prepare to belt out Young Hearts Run Free and fall maddeningly in love with Leo all over again. Never was a story of more woe, when you forgot to get tickets to Juliet..and Romeo.
