So hot of the heals of Secret Cinema’s Lockdown Party presented over zoom, which we loved by the way. The crazy guys over at Secret Cinema are at it again. This time with Secret film sofa parties each week. Check out the lowdown below.

Dark forces and demogorgons aside, current times are looking a bit too much like a dystopian film even for our liking. Whilst the true heroes fight for us on the frontline, there are better ways to pass your time indoors than organising your spice rack.

Get ready for Secret Sofa. 

Secret Cinema have teamed up with ice cream friends Häagen-Dazs to add a bit of magic to your lockdown. Over the next 8 weeks, they will bring you Secret Worlds you may have loved, may have missed or new ones we can explore together, directly to your home.

What to expect:

  • First things first – sign up with your email on Secret Cinema’s website.

  • Every Tuesday the Secret Sofa of the week will be announced via email. Sometimes they will tell you the title up front, other times they’ll keep you guessing. It wouldn’t be them without a surprise or two…

  • In the email, you will find all the tools needed to create your own pocket of this universe. From character and costume suggestions to era-defining music and activities to food and drink ideas (and ice cream, obviously) – how far you go is up to you.

  • At 7.30pm (BST) on Friday, thousands of households hit play at the same time to watch some of the greatest films together.

  • Secret Cinema will have a range of events and explorations for you and your friends to hang out in. Friday night is film night, but let’s just say other surprises might come on other nights of the week.

Attention Operative.

You have been handpicked by the Secret Intelligence Service.

Due to the bravery of thousands of civilians, a number of key targets were neutralised. However, the latest intelligence suggests a larger underground force is emerging with connections both in London and Shanghai.

As one of our top Operatives, we will be sending you to the Casino Royale Montenegro this Friday.
