Underground Cinema takes cinema out of the cinema by creating engaging experiences that transport guests to another world. This month Underground Cinema is proud to be screening a beautiful foreign film by a remarkable and internationally acclaimed film maker, often described as a creative genius.
No, they can’t tell you who it is, nor reveal the name of the film, but they can tell you that Underground Cinema will be taking you into the wonderful and creative world of ‘Magic’. Upon entering this mystical land guests, who are encouraged to wear their finest Kimonos, will present their offerings to the Spirits. Here they will get to experience the wonders of our enchanting folk, talking creatures and fearsome fiends.
We asked Tamasein Holyman, the Creative Director of Underground Cinema;
Why did we choose a Japanese Theme for this event?
Underground Cinema prides itself on inviting film fanatics to experience cinema in all styles and in all genres. 2011 is focussed on the Directors – The Art of the Auteur. This year we’ll be taking members on an amazing cinematic journey, bringing them face to face with the best directors in the world, allowing them experience a diverse range of films like never before.
The reason why we have chosen a Japanese theme is because this month we’re proud to be screening a beautiful foreign film by a remarkable and internationally acclaimed film maker, often described as a creative genius.
Japanese culture is beautiful, and Japanese film offers insights not seen in mainstream Western cinema. It was only a matter of time until we hosted a Japanese themed event so it was a natural progression and we are very happy to be doing so!
What do you think is the best way to get into Underground Cinema?
Each event is different and to understand the creative ethos and charm of Underground Cinema, and gain the full experience, visitors should attend our screenings as often as possible! The team at Underground Cinema firmly believes in creating engaging and immersive events that are mysterious and fun. We are not your average multiplex experience; we are so much more and we dearly love sharing that with anyone and everyone we come into contact with!
