secret stuff.

Underground Cinema is not just a movie. It's a 4+ hour immersive participatory experience unlike any other.

This is not your average multiplex experience; arriving at our secret locations is like walking onto a film set with actors, sets and costumes.

We keep our locations a secret and the films identity a mystery too.


i'm lost.

You will discover the secret location 24 hours prior to the first show via email & SMS to the contact information you provided at the time of ticket purchase. It will also be posted here on the website and the Underground Cinema Facebook event page on the first showday of the series. Venue locations are chosen with consideration to PT travel time for guests, with timings based off an inner city starting point.
