Secret Cinema, London

Call me conventional, but when I go to the cinema, I like to know what film I’m going to see. However, Secret Cinema have made not knowing what film is showing – or where or when! – really exciting.

Each month, Secret Cinema puts on a film in a wacky location around London. Buy a ticket and you’ll have to wait until the last minute for an email telling you to go to a particular tube station at a particular time in a particular style of fancy dress.

From there, clues lead you to the venue which could be anything from a rooftop to a derelict building. A themed set, costumed actors, live music and fun theatrics build up the atmosphere and hint at the film to be shown.

Don’t worry though. Popcorn is always available.

    This fishing village has no room for a pavement, let alone a road, and the cars are replaced by wheelbarrows.
