Secret Cinema is bringing the world of the critically acclaimed Netflix series Stranger Things to life.
The production will transform a secret London location into the suburban town of Hawkins, Indiana, and its supernatural shadow, The Upside Down.
The drama Stranger Things is based around the pupils of Hawkins High School, who are drawn into a world of supernatural activity after a portal to an alternate dimension is accidentally opened by the nearby Hawkins National Laboratory. Critically acclaimed, two series of the show are currently streaming on Netflix, with a third due to drop on 4 July 2019.
Set in the 1980s, Stranger Things is filled with nostalgia and references from blockbuster films from the era and this production promises to transport audiences back to the iconic period of pop culture.
A collaboration with Netflix, this is the first time Secret Cinema have produced an experience for a TV series. It will introduce brand new storylines, characters and locations, as well as revisit much-loved narratives and popular fan moments from the series. Drawing on over 20 hours of drama from seasons one to three, the immersive experience will take audiences on a journey, blurring live storylines into the world of Stranger Things.
Secret Cinema Presents Stranger Things is set to run from 13 November 2019 until the end of the year.
