Secret Cinema has revealed it will take on Ridley Scott’s original Blade Runner from 1982, for what it claims to be its biggest ever production. The immersive events have grown in scale and quality in the past few years, after Back to the Future – the start of which was pushed back when completion of the set was delayed – Star Wars – which took over the now-renovated club venue Printworks – and last year’s Moulin Rouge. This marks the company’s tenth anniversary.
Like previous shows, ticket holders will be assigned characters and invited to dress, and act, according to their role – which could be a cop, a replicant or another member of the dystopian future society. As per tradition, a vast set will recreate the Blade Runner world, peppered with real actors playing characters from the film, and ticket-holders will be able to explore, interact with characters and partake in side plots and missions. Ridley Scott’s final cut will be screened at the end.
Over 60 shows will run from 21 March – 10 June 2018 at an (obviously) undisclosed location. Tickets go on sale today, ranging from £45 for a regular ticket to £115 for VIP.
