Secret Cinema has struck a deal with the House of Mouse to bring some of your favourite Disney films to life

Oh, sorry, that’s not an announcement. That’s me hoping. Hoping hard.


If you’re in to nostalgic films, heavy drinking, light LARPing (live action role playing) and live anywhere near London, chances are you’ve been to a Secret Cinema event, held at a secret event in the capital.

They look a bit like this.



Secret Cinema strikes“multi-title agreement to adapt iconic Disney films”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a “multi-title agreement to adapt iconic Disney films” has been struck between Secret Cinema and Disney. Secret Cinema will work with Disney’s StudioLAB (“a tech hub where filmmakers and creatives engage in hands-on experimentation and exploration of next-gen technologies to push the art of storytelling”, according to Disney), to bring iconic Disney titles to life for both British and US audiences.


According to The Hollywood Reporter, the first Disney film to be adapted by Secret Cinema is scheduled to premiere in London later this year.


Secret Cinema will bring Disney entities to life in both UK and US

The partnership will then expand into US territories, specifically Los Angeles and New York. I can’t imagine a huge amount of ‘Disney LARPing’ goes on in Arkansas… IJS.

The film titles for each territory are yet to be revealed – in fact, Disney and Secret Cinema have been pretty hush hush about this whole thing – but I have some hunches…


Which Disney films will be getting the Secret Cinema treatment?

Remember, that Disney basically has pretty bought everything that’s ever been made in the last decade now, which means they own the rights to Marvel, Star Wars and 20th Century Studios (which includes every from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to The Simpsons). Since they launched in 2009, Secret Cinema has created immersive experiences out of the following epic films:

  • Alien in 2009.
  • The Battle of Algiers in 2011.
  • The Shawshank Redemption in 2012.
  • Casablanca in 2013.
  • Miller’s Crossing in 2014.
  • The Grand Budapest Hotel in 2014.
  • Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in 2015.
  • 28 Days Later in 2016.
  • Baz Luhrmann’s Moulin Rouge! in 2017 (I went to this one, FYI, and lived my absolute best life).
  • Blade Runner: The Final Cut in 2018.
  • William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet in 2018.


This year, they’re currently running a Stranger Things experience and selling tickets to an immersive Casino Royale and Dirty Dancing event.


Here’s my guess…

I’d be surprised if they went with a Star Wars entity again for their big Disney reveal, so I’m going with one of the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

We’ll jut have to wait and scene. But, if you’re still deciding big dogs…

Please don’t come for me.


I wouldn’t mind seeing Secret Cinema work their unique-style of magic on Hocus Pocus, Beauty and the Beast, Avatar and Indiana Jones, too.


In fact, I’d put my money on any of those, tbh.
