Underground Cinema is returning to Melbourne in August to present the second instalment of their sold-out immersive film experience from 5 years ago: La Guerre 2.0.
If you’re confused, Kirstyn Paul from UGC explains: “Immersive cinema is an experience where we bring to life a part of a film for our guests to explore and engage with. We ask guests to dress to a theme and they might have missions or actors speak to them. You can engage as much or as little as you want.”
As for the ‘La Guerre 2.0’ theme, don your 1940s best and enter a world of mystery and intrigue as you step back in time into the heart of World War II. Produced by leading immersive experience designers Secret Squirrel Productions, Underground Cinema’s Creative Director Tamasein Holyman says that 'La Guerre 2.0' is much more than just the original show.
“We took 5 years to create the first La Guerre and now another 5 years later we are excited to deliver something beautiful and extraordinary for our fans," Holyman says. "I absolutely love this world that our guests get to discover, taking them back to an era of romance with a little bit of wow thrown in.”
To give you a better sense of what to expect, one of the previous themes was ‘DELIRIUM’, where guests were asked to dress as Federal Marshals and the surprise film was Shutter Island.
The themes. as always, are open to interpretation and encourage guests to get as creative or weird as they like. And whether you’re a returning film aficionado or popping your underground cinema cherry, each experience explores a different theme or genre, so there’s always something new and exciting.
Guests will receive a text and email the day prior to the event to reveal the location, but the movie remains a mystery until arrival.
Tickets go on sale at 1pm on Thursday, but you’ll have to be quick because it will sell out.
