In ‘We Want To Discuss About…’, the brand new weekly column from NME’s Jordan Bassett, J-to-the-B vents his spleen on the topical points that matter probably the most (or the least, if it occurs to be a sluggish information day). This week: why ‘immersive leisure’, epitomised by Secret Cinema, which has returned with an experiential screening of ‘Romeo + Juliet’, is not any match for an evening down the pub
Wherefore artwork thou, good old style night time down the pub? What ever occurred to a couple pints and shoving a quid within the itbox? Inform me: why do I’ve to decorate up as Ace Ventura each time I desire a night time out?
Secret Cinema, the cinematic phenomenon that kickstarted an apparently limitless pattern for elaborate immersive experiences throughout the nation, is returning with a screening of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet, which stars a younger Leonardo DiCaprio and the superb Claire Danes. As ever, attendees have been given directions on the kind of fancy gown they need to put on, themed across the movie, whereas actors will carry out components of the narrative and encourage you to get caught in, earlier than everybody sits right down to benefit from the movie. Final time round, again in April, punters navigated a rain-lashed, dystopian Blade Runner cityscape in a warehouse in London. This time round, Secret Cinema’s senior producer Andrea Moccia has promised “a spectacle of Hawaiian shirts, color and happiness.”
Reader, because you didn’t really ask, I cannot be taking part on this spectacle. Oh, hiya there, would you prefer to swap 80 English kilos for the prospect to slide on a Hawaiian shirt and watch a Claire Danes film from 1996? No, thanks, my pal – I’m not a Tory. Oh, hiya there, would you prefer to traipse by man-made rain in a warehouse in east London, dragging an more and more heavy leather-based coat within the puddles behind you? I’ve mentioned it earlier than, my pal, and I’ll say it once more: no thanks, as a result of I’m not a Tory.
“A spectacle of Hawaiian shirts, color and happiness,” says Andrea. Nicely, I imply, that does sound fairly enjoyable, really, however no! We should not enable enjoyable to face in the best way of rules. It’s like, are you aware how many individuals had been concerned within the making of that film and what a miracle it’s that it got here into existence? In the course of the filming of Romeo + Juliet, the film’s hairdresser, Aldo Signoretti, was kidnapped and the filmmakers needed to pay $300 to have him returned. Except for the truth that $300 is a surprisingly inexpensive ransom, that appears like a aggravating incident that Signoretti and the filmmakers overcame for you, for me, for everybody who ever beloved the film. Oh, however that’s not sufficient for you, is it? You’ll be able to’t simply watch the movie – you need to be in it, too.
Based in 2007, Secret Cinema ushered in an period of experiential leisure – Blitz Events; immersive theatre; escape rooms and The Tweed Run, which in Could noticed punters gown up in ye olde garb and trip classic bikes by London – that simply received’t die. “Hey!” my pal says, “would you want to decorate up as a 1940s soldier and faux we’re having a jolly outdated war-time knees-up? Ooh!” she provides, “would you want to come back to Jason Orange’s brother’s home and discuss to out-of-work actors for an immersive manufacturing of The Image of Dorian Grey that’s being staged within the basement?” And I believe: develop up, Rebecca, you’re 29 years outdated. Simply go down the pub and have a Birra Moretti.
It’s not even simply concerning the cash. Yeah, Secret Cinema’s costly, and there’s a monetary threshold to cross earlier than you may encase your self in a tweed swimsuit and pedal your classic unicycle throughout London Fields, however you possibly can simply drop 60 quid on six pints, a shit membership and a doner kebab (that’s why everybody’s going to unlawful raves lately). Whereas experiential, organised enjoyable is especially expensive – at Secret Cinema the price of entry is compounded by the price of the costume, plus foods and drinks when you get inside – what irks concerning the phenomenon is truth means that it turns every little thing right into a pompous pageant, a aggressive parade for upwardly cellular millennials to show how quirky they’re.
With its expense, pomp and ceremony, immersive leisure is an after-dinner speech at Chequers. It’s fox-hunting within the Cotswolds, it’s a jacket with tail-coats that make you appear to be the tin-pot dictator of a small island nation. It’s David Cameron at Wilderness competition, Theresa Could and her bizarre ventriloquist dummy husband on Christmas Day and it’s, “Oh my God do you bear in mind what Tom wore to the Winter Formal final 12 months?” It’s jolly hockey sticks and derring-do and getting ruddy nicely caught in.
And I do know what you’re going to ask, so earlier than you begin – no, I’ve by no means been to Secret Cinema. I do like Romeo and Juliet, although. And Hawaiian shirts. And enjoyable. Damnit – my three loves sprung from my solely hate.
