Those attending a series of film screenings have the chance to sit on comfortable seating such as luxury cushions and bean bags while watching the big screen.
However, an article in the Guardian notes that Secret Cinema – which takes place in venues across the country – offers a slightly different experience than the traditional trip to the multiplex.
Showing classic films such as Blade Runner and Bugsy Malone, the action on screen is complemented by real-life theatre.
The publication notes that some 3,500 people dressed as Bedouins while sat on cushions to watch Lawrence of Arabia, with actors and camels appearing on-stage to recreate the action on-screen.
"At Secret Cinema, you're not just passively watching a film – the actors treat you as if you're part of it and you're connecting with the rest of the audience," founder Fabien Riggall claims.
But this is not the first time that cosy seating and watching films have been linked. Writing for Moviematics.com earlier this month, Neil Turner stated bean bags are "perfect" for watching DVDs on.
