Secret Cinema To Recreate Star Wars In London This Summer

After their complicated and much-delayed immersive screening of Back To The Future last summer, you might think Secret Cinema would scale things back a wee bit, but in a defiant show of chutzpah they're now aiming for about as ambitious a project as you can imagine. From 4 June they'll be putting on The Empire Strikes Back in a secret London location.

It'll be interesting to see how they recreate the frozen wastes of Hoth (maybe the walk-in fridge at Smithfield meat market?) or the floaty atmospherics of Cloud City (the underused cable car?), or the Death Star itself (ah, surely the laser-powered Walkie Talkie). Actually, the more we think about it, the more we think London can easily stand in for a galaxy far far away (well, they did film them all in Elstree).

Tickets go on sale on 18 March at 1pm — and there'll be a bit of competition, so in all probability you'll have to use the force if you want one.
