I am a copywriter based in Melbourne.
I write here about any interesting activities I come across.

Not content with film festivals and multiplexes, Melbourne is now bringing the experience of movie-going to a whole new level with the birth of 'Underground Cinema'. The concept involves film screenings across Melbourne in a secret location disclosed only a few days before the actual event.
Half the fun of 'Underground Cinema' is not knowing where you might end up. Past screenings have occurred at places such as a gothic church and a giant warehouse and the next location will depend on which film you will be seeing (which is also a secret).
Furthermore, 'Underground Cinema' attempts to create a completely immersive experience through performance, costume and music. Moviegoers are encouraged to dress up according to a theme, which could be anything from '80s prom' to 'cloaks and corsets'. The atmosphere of the film world is also recreated through live acts and performers at the film location.
If this kind of mystery and intrigue sounds like the kind of thing you need to spice up your dull movie experiences, then head over to the website and sign up now. You'll then receive an email about the event and be given the option of purchasing tickets, which are usually around $30.
Once that's done, there's nothing more to do but wait in anticipation to be texted the secret location and before you know it, you'll be whisked off on your very own underground film adventure.
