It's no secret that The Empire Strikes Back is one of the best films ever made
If you've ever been to Secret Cinema, you know the deal: expect breathtaking venues to explore, actors to interact with, plot lines to jump into and themed food and drink to indulge in – it's like you've stepped into the film itself. Oh, and alongside this immersive experience there'll be an actual screening to watch too, of course. Secret Cinema are finally taking on the biggest cult film of all, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. After the destruction of the Death Star, Imperial forces continue to pursue the Rebels and the Star Wars franchise takes a dark sinister turn. The Empire Strikes Back defies viewer expectations and takes the series to heightened emotional levels. Epic stuff. "In many ways [it's] a better film than Star Wars, visually more exciting, more artful and meticulous in detail." – Time "The storyline is more interesting and ambitious, the characters are allowed to grow and develop, the special effects are more mature, and the tone is deliciously dark and downbeat." – ReelViews Certificate U. Event runtime: 5 hours. Over 18s only. Valid ID may be required. Dress code: Stars Wars themed. A scarf will come in handy to hide your identity.
