U.K.’s Secret Cinema Draws Audiences With Immersive Events for Classic Films

20 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Theater owners have bemoaned declining audience numbers for years. So it might be a surprise to learn of one exhibitor that packs them in despite showing old movies and charging upward of $85 a ticket.

Secret Cinema has been putting on films in London since 2007. The latest, 1987’s “Dirty Dancing,” wrapped July 24 after six days of sold-out screenings that raked in $2.5 million. The company offers an “immersive,” interactive experience, with sophisticated sets, actors, and staged events. Audience members are encouraged to wear costumes.

For “Dirty Dancing,” 30,000 attendees descended on an East London park that had been converted into a fictional Catskills resort. Decked out in ’60s attire, they indulged in outdoor games and laughed at cheesy stage acts for hours before the film finally lit up the huge outdoor screen.

Some of Secret Cinema’s previous productions have been even more ambitious. Its 2014 “Back to the Future” extravaganza re-created a ’50s-era American town. »

Have Secret Cinema just revealed their next two big productions?

28 July 2016 12:17 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Next Secret Cinema production could be a musical spectacular (spectacular) and a Spielberg classic.

The next Secret Cinema gigs could have been revealed in a series of mysterious social media posts.

Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve been covering the latest Secret Cinema event here on The Hollywood News. That project was the superb Dirty Dancing where the organisers turned an East London park into the Kellerman’s resort from the famous movie. It was nothing short of awesome to be honest, and the 30,000 attendees sent the film hurtling into the top ten for the first time in 29 years. You can check out some images from the event here, and our review of proceedings over here.

As ever when one production closes, thoughts immediately turn to which movie they will concentrate their efforts on next, and we may just have figured out what they may be plotting. Over »

Check out some images & video from Secret Cinema’s Dirty Dancing spectacular

26 July 2016 5:12 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

A week ago we were lucky enough to visit Secret Cinema’s fantastic Dirty Dancing event in East London – quite simply one of the best nights of our lives. We were a little limited in what we could tell you about the event as we didn’t want to spoil it for others. Well, not that the event has ended we can reveal some images and an awesome drone video from the event to give you an idea of its scale. It was, quite simply… amazing.

An event that had us dancing from the moment that we entered the Leyton Jubilee Park which was dressed up as Kellerman’s, the fictional holiday camp from the 1987 movie Dirty Dancing. We danced, we took part in art classes, carried watermelons naughtily into the staff quarters when we weren’t meant to, drank summer cocktails and eventually watched a movie.

Secret Cinema: Dirty Dancing review – the UK's biggest hen party

25 July 2016 4:44 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Re-enactments of the film’s big scenes enable a hyped-up, hula-hooping crowd in a sing-along with the atmosphere of a drunken sleepover

“When I say Dance, you say Ing, dancING, dancING!” honks a pigtailed rep through a megaphone, wearing boxfresh Keds, a burgundy Kellerman’s T-shirt and apostrophes for eyes, at the entrance to a familiar looking time warp. “The talent contest will be at 6.45pm!” The crowd, dressed head to toe in 1963, cheerfully whoop and expectantly scan the commotion of fancy dress and forced fun. This is Secret Cinema, after all, where the first rule isn’t don’t talk about Secret Cinema; it’s get involved or go home.

For summer, the blockbustering site-specific behemoth has recreated randy coming-of-age classic Dirty Dancing. As usual, at a secret London location, there are interactive re-enactments and festivalesque frippery foreshadowing the film itself, elevating it from “outdoor screening in a field »

Watch the trailer for the new version of ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’

21 July 2016 5:03 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Picture Show is getting the remake treatment over at Fox at the moment, and to co-incide quite nicely with this week’s San Diego Comic Con, the network have released a brand new trailer for the TV event.

The new version stars, amongst others, Laverne Cox, Victoria Justice, and Ryan McCartan and is directed by Kenny Ortega, the man responsible for directing Hocus Pocus, the High School Musical trilogy, Descendants and Michael Jackson’s This Is It. He also did the choreography on Dirty Dancing, so is a bit of a living legend.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is set to air October 2016. Sweethearts Janet (Justice) and Brad (McCartan) stumble upon flirtatious mad scientist Dr. Frank-n-furter’s (Cox) bizarre abode during his annual Transylvanian science convention. The two-hour event also features Emmy Award nominee Tim Curry, the original Frank-n-Furter.

We’re having the time of our lives at the moment. Following a great weekend at Secret Cinema Dirty Dancing, we can not bring you some new rehearsal images from the new stage version of Dirty Dancing – The Classic Story On Stage, which returns to the stage in a nationwide tour later this year.

The classic story of Baby and Johnny, featuring the hit songs ‘Hungry Eyes’, ‘Hey! Baby’, ‘Do You Love Me?’ and the heart stopping ‘(I’ve Had) The Time Of My Life’, returns to the UK this summer, »

Secret Cinema: Dirty Dancing review: “The Time Of Your Lives…”

18 July 2016 2:27 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Secret Cinema Dirty Dancing review: Possibly one of the best movie experiences we’ve ever sampled. So much fun that you really will have the ‘Time Of Your Life’.

Secret Cinema Dirty Dancing review by Paul Heath, July 2016.

Secret Cinema Dirty Dancing review

Secret Cinema returns for their latest production, their third of the years so far, an ambitious recreation of the famous Kellerman’s holiday camp from the film Dirty Dancing.

Secret Cinema’s 2016 events all kicked off back in March when the organisers asked us to Tell No One for their cold war event which turned out to be a production based around Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, a title which wasn’t revealed to attendees prior to the event. That wasn’t the case for their lavish follow-up, Secret Cinema presents 28 Days Later, which arrived in »

Nicolas Cage: examining his recent straight-to-dvd movies

4 July 2016 9:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Jul 5, 2016

We dig through the ten recent straight-to-dvd films of Mr Nicolas Cage. Can we find a gem in there?

The first Nicolas Cage movie I saw wasn’t one of the cool ones. It wasn’t Wild At Heart, Raising Arizona or even Valley Girl. It was the Cher rom-com, Moonstruck.

My mum, having just gone through an acrimonious divorce, was trying to drum up the optimism to find love again, and apparently that involved watching a lot of rom-coms where an idealised – or at least intrinsically whimsical – version of love prevailed over boring old steadfast responsibility.

She would watch Dirty Dancing three or four times in a day, rewinding the ending relentlessly and bawling her eyes out. A VHS of Baby Boom was worn down until the tape resembled a type of grey, flimsy nylon. I hesitate to imagine what she was projecting with repeated viewings of Overboard, »

Scott Ellis Set as Director for NBC’s ‘A Few Good Men’ Live Play, Aaron Sorkin Discusses Casting & More

14 June 2016 11:34 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Scott Ellis has been tapped to direct NBC’s upcoming live adaptation of “A Few Good Men.”

Aaron Sorkin broke the news Tuesday morning at Variety’s annual TV Summit, held at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills, Calif.

“I couldn’t be more excited about that,” Sorkin said of Ellis directing.

Ellis is a multi-time Tony-nominated director, having worked on the stage productions “She Loves Me,” “Steel Pier,” “1776,” “Twelve Angry Men,” “Curtains,” “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” and “You Can’t Take It with You.” On the television side, Ellis was exec producer on Showtime’s “Weeds.” He has directed episodes of “Modern Family,” “Nurse Jackie,” “The Good Wife,” “Desperate Housewives,” “Frasier” and “30 Rock,” for which he was nominated for an Emmy.

Sorkin spoke about “A Few Good Men” at the Variety event on a panel with NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt, exec producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron and Kenny Leon, who directed NBC’s “The Wiz Live” and is on board to direct “Hairspray Live.”

“If something happens to Scott, let me know. I’m waiting in the wings!” Leon joked on the panel, pitching himself to direct the live play. Greenblatt chimed in: “You’re busy doing ‘Hairspray.'”

For the NBC live adaptation, Sorkin is re-writing “A Few Good Men,” which originally started as a Broadway play, before the 1992 film, starring Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson and Demi Moore.

“I am very exited to write it up again. It was my first play, it was my starter play. I’m very proud of it, but it still feels a little bit like my high school yearbook picture to me. I think, or I at least hope, I’m a better writer now,” Sorkin said. “I’m looking forward to attacking it just for the sake of a re-write, as well as it should be written for this particular production.”

As for casting, the panel said that they’re getting into the process.

“We are reaching out to people. We’re beyond having just a list,” Sorkin revealed, adding that the creative team is getting many phone calls, now that the new wave of live TV productions has blown up. “Actors don’t get the opportunity to do that a lot,” he said of performing live on television.

The panelists praised Carrie Underwood for being the first actor to step into the new world of live TV with NBC’s “The Sound of Music” in 2013. Three years later, actors are jumping at the opportunity to flex their creative muscles on live TV.

“I’m going to give you the long list of scaredy-cats from ‘Sound of Music’ because there are some big people who said, ‘I can’t do that,'” Greenblatt said for “A Few Good Men” casting.

In addition to talent getting excited, the entire Hollywood community has welcomed the live programming wave.

“We got a call out of the blue from Tyler Perry,” Zadan said. “He called and he said, ‘I’m calling to help you because I’m going to mobilize a social media campaign for ‘The Wiz’ because this has to succeed.’ He called Oprah and he called everyone else that he knows and they started tweeting…the support that we got from the community was so overwhelming…because they know that failure means there won’t be anymore. We needed those ratings for this to continue because they’re so expensive.”

The new trend of TV musicals come with a learning curve — and being the first live play on television in decades, “A Few Good Men” even more so.

“I have been for years wanting to see live theater come back to television,” Sorkin said. “I was thinking, ‘Boy I hope [NBC] expands into non-musicals next’ — not thinking for a second that my play would be the canary in the coal mine.’

Surely Sorkin’s revitalized play will launch a new wave of more live plays on television, just like “The Sound of Music” inspired more NBC musicals, including “Peter Pan” and “The Wiz,” and Fox’s “Grease Live.” And up next at the broadcast networks is Fox’s “Rocky Horror Picture Show” and ABC’s “Dirty Dancing.”

“There are no barriers between Broadway, movies and television anymore,” Greenblatt said. “Tt’s completely interwoven now.”

Up next for NBC is “Hairspray Live” in December. But, Greenblatt teased that it won’t be long for “A Few Good Men” to come.

“We’re probably going to do it in February,” the NBC exec revealed. “We haven’t locked in the date.”

While February will bring a new cast and a new script to Sorkin’s hit, he assures that the live production will stay true to form.

Quoting the film’s most famous line, Sorkin quipped: “It’s going to be ‘A Few Good Man.’ You can’t handle the truth! It’s going to be ‘A Few Good Men.'”

Dancing With the Stars Finals: Which Couple Should Win Season 22?

23 May 2016 7:05 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It’s time to give Dancing With the Stars credit where it’s due.

A few months back, as I compiled my gallery of Season 22 odds, I found it difficult to suppress my scoffs as I scrolled through a seemingly dismal lineup of celebrities. From Geraldo Rivera to Doug Flutie, it seemed as though the Season 22 roster was the ABC series’ least impressive yet, resulting in a general feeling of “meh” as the premiere approached.

Now, to be fair, Geraldo had no business stepping even his pinky toe on the ballroom floor, and Doug — though he exhibited great sportsmanship — was »

Let’s Do the Time Warp Again: Teaser for Rocky Horror Picture Show Arrives

18 May 2016 7:50 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Dust off those fishnet stockings, there’s a new Rocky Horror Picture Show on the way…

Can you believe it’s been over forty years since The Rocky Horror Picture Show first arrived in cinemas? The film / stage show has become a massive cult hit and still manages to sell-out both cinema screens and theatre halls. The film starred Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Richard O’Brien, Meatloaf and Tim Curry and followed a young girl and her boyfriend as  they pay a call to the peculiar residence of Dr. Frank-n-Furter after breaking down.  With its zany fashion and catchy tunes the film had seeped its way into popular culture and there’s barely a wedding reception out there  that doesn’t play The Time Warp at least once.

Given the longevity of the film it’s a little surprising that anyone would want to touch it. But it seems that »

Drive-In Dust Offs: Waxwork (1988)

30 April 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

The late ’80s provided a veritable potpourri for horror film fanatics. Slashers had petered out, and filmmakers were keen on exploring other avenues, everything from a parasitic drug slug (Brain Damage) to possession (The Unholy), and all points in-between. Of course, mileage may vary, and many have fallen through the cracks or are best forgotten. Possibly one of the oddest of the bunch is Anthony Hickox’s Waxwork (1988), a goofball mixture of Hammer and Amicus brought kicking and screaming into the modern era with a touch o’ teen comedy sensibility. And in horror, odd never hurts—and sometimes it even helps create an unassuming delight such as this.

Produced and distributed by Vestron Pictures, who scored big the previous year with the terrifying Dirty Dancing, Waxwork was given a limited release in June in the Us and the rest of the world the following year. Made for $1,500,000, it only returned $800,000 domestically. »

Watch: Restore your love in movies, here’s short film ‘100 Years/100 Shots’

22 April 2016 8:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Filmmaker and self-pronounced cinephile Jacob T. Swinney has a new video essay called 100 Years/100 Shots. The title’s pretty self-explanatory. It’s about the history of Tequila in the 21st century.

Swinney has chosen his most memorable shot from each year in the last 100 and placed them next to each other in chronological sequence. Not only does it fascinatingly chart the evolution of the medium, it also reaffirms why we devote so much of our spare time to the movies. See beneath the video embed below for the full list (in order) used.
