Saturday 7th Sept for me.

Please NO SPOILERS from anybody who attends an earlier date!  ajb007/biggrin 

For those that haven't been to Secret Cinema before you are in for a real treat! But do be aware that they work really hard to keep everything 'secret' for good reason.  So they won't let you take pictures / videos etc whilst you are there - and they actively police that policy. I was at the recent Blade Runner SC and took my phone out of it's (provided) ziplock bag to store a number about 2 hours after the film had finished (we were still drinking/enjoying the 'nightclub') - and was still pounced on by a security ninja and told to put it away. Was actually very impressed with their dedication to keeping it all in your mind...

It does mean that the event retains that element of surprise / awe right down to the very last screening.

Can't wait - it is going to be amazing!

Yes. Considerably.

I recall there being photo ops within the ESB environment but maybe they've changed the rules since.

I also recall other Secret Cinemas not running anywhere near as long.

Hey PMJB

Interesting re: ESB. Certainly no photos at Blade Runner - and taken from their website now:

Turn imagination into vivid memories as you leave your distractions at the door. All phones are sealed to ensure you experience the world through your own eyes, and not your screen.

I think the duration depends on the location. For Blade Runner it was a warehouse in the East End, so after the film finished, they turned the main location area (which was the Deckard street scene at the noodle bar including constant rain (it was amazing!)) into a nightclub that went through til about 2am.

Anyways...I am sure that they are going to do something incredible with this film. Can’t wait :-)

Yes. Considerably.

Re: Secret Cinema presents Casino Royale in 2019

Secret Cinema chiefs talk global ambitions, management changes and 'Casino Royale'
https://www.screendaily.com/features/se … 12.article

In the case of Casino Royale, Eon has been heavily involved in its prequel narrative, as well as every other element. “They’ve certainly been more active,” says Davidson. “It’s very much a live approvals process. We see them very regularly. They have very strong opinions on how Bond is portrayed. We are guided in how we portray him and the other characters, and how we portray the world.” She adds that the Eon involvement is “at senior level”.

Casino Royale will be the first title guided by Kevin Fitzmaurice, former lead producer at the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC), who joined as Secret Cinema’s group creative producer last September. Angus Jackson, an RSC associate artist, has been hired to serve as creative director on the Bond event, while Robert Innes Hopkins will create the set designs. “It’s a new approach for us that we’re attracting talent at that level,” notes Davidson. “Previously, it was very much Fabian who was the creative mastermind of it all, whereas now we’re mixing and matching creative talent with titles — still under Fabian’s watchful eye to make sure it has the Secret Cinema essence and the magic he brought to it.”

Secret Cinema will have the budget to offer a lavish presentation. The company sold 50,000 tickets for Casino Royale across 70 nights within nine days of tickets going on sale last December, becoming its fastest-selling show ever. To increase capacity, the team looked at the planned venue and found, says Davidson, ways to “reimagine the space and expand the show so it works for a larger audience”. Another tranche of tickets went on sale on January 25, also extending the run from the initial 14 weeks.

Re: Secret Cinema presents Casino Royale in 2019

I did kind of think that something like Skyfall would've have given them slightly more interesting set opportunities (the Shanghai Casino, Skyfall itself, the grungy MI6 base, Turkish market etc.) whereas Royale is perhaps a bit more uninteresting on the indoors-sets front: I suppose you can do the building site pretty effectively but, y'know: it's a building site! I expect Madagascar will be a fairly important part of it as it's a bit of foreign travel. A Miami airport isn't exactly a thrilling destination to replicate, and even the Bahamas in CR didn't have much that you'd imagine would translate to the interior of an old warehouse in Surrey Quays. But a casino location is a pretty iconic Bond location so I guess it makes sense to do one of those. I'd guess that they'll be using some sort of old building with a classical interior which they can tart up to feel like a lavish casino? An old hotel or something? I guess it depends what's big enough: these summer ones need big spaces. I'm looking forward to it anyway!

Re: Secret Cinema presents Casino Royale in 2019

So I've registered for the event, attending 21st June. My meeting area is Dagenham East, has anyone else had a location? I'm assuming that it will take place somewhere around that area? I'm guessing that they need a pretty big site for this ?

Re: Secret Cinema presents Casino Royale in 2019

Apparently there is an old industrial site there by the station, needs to be somewhere big so guessing it maybe that? Should be good though

Re: Secret Cinema presents Casino Royale in 2019

There is a Premier Inn fairly close. 10 minutes in a cab. Dagenham one. It’s a place to sleep that’s about it.

42

Re: Secret Cinema presents Casino Royale in 2019

You might be better off looking for accommodation in Essex rather than London. Be easy to jump into a mini cab/Uber after the event. Dagenham is a right slog back into town.

On another note, has anyone been told to wear anything other than black and white with another colour? Assuming everyone is going to be pretry much be in black tie?

It’s definitely a cab to the hotel and not a walk (it’s walking distance, but not at midnight) For me the closer the better that night. Home in the morning.

It's not clear what the business cards will have on them? Is it just your 'name' - need a bit more detail. Dress code not that clear either, the pictures not showing black tie, only suites ???

Have I missed something on the site perhaps?

I think the business card available in the merchandise pack is a single generic item. I've ordered my pack anyway and it should arrive tomorrow so will let you know. I did give them my Alias in case the cards are personalised.

I have created my own cards now with my Alias and cover company, as I have seen others have done.

Check out the fb page for further details and you should have received a couple of messages from HQ too.

Not sure on your confusion regarding dress code? Different style depending on your Alias. Feel free to PM me, but Trust No one..
