At a Secret London Location Operatives assembled for #operationwildcard. With our Mission Kit in hand, JBC joined other Bond Fans from around the world for an immersive Cinematic Experience. James Bond Canada would like to extend Special Thanks to Joe Lamb at Visible PR, David Zaritsky at The Bond Experience and Secret Cinema for this incredible experience.
What struck me most about this experience was a feeling of being truly transported to Casino Royale in Montenegro from the moment I arrived. I don’t think I’ve ever seen 1500 people dressed so impeccably in one place before. Upon entering you immediately realize that you are in a different world and that your adventure is waiting for you around every corner.
Your Alias is the the foundation on which you will build your own unique experience. Who are you? Why are you there? What do you do? Don’t think for a moment that you can simply “wing it”. If you focus on the character you’ve created for the evening and are well prepared with a solid background story, you’ll be astonished at how much it can contribute to the successful completion of your Mission. JBC’s alter ego for the evening was Trust Fund Socialite, Jasper Buchanan. We were dressed to kill in a black ensemble, gold tie & pocket square with Gold Sneakers…which seemed to get a lot of cool looks & quite a few ” Hey Dude…Great Kicks!!”
What you will enjoy most about Secret Cinema Presents Casino Royale is that you can enjoy the everything at your own pace. If you care to slow roll your evening enjoying the sights and sounds, top notch food and drinks, and the goings on of the other guests engaging with the Casino Royale performers…you can do exactly that. There is no right or wrong way to take advantage of everything this immersive cinematic adventure has to offer. If you decide to delve deep into your spy persona and strive to complete your mission you will not be disappointed. Watch for clues, interact with the superb cast of the Event, and before you know it you’ll be receiving Top Secret briefings which will help you along the way.
As with all Secret Cinema events, the live action around you transitions into the final act of the evening when you will get to enjoy a Screening of Casino Royale. The interactive nature of Secret Cinema doesn’t end when the film goes up so you will continue to enjoy live action moments that coincide with the on screen scenes. This is really a must attend for any James Bond Fan. If you’ve always wanted to be a Tech Mogul or Music Producer for a evening, and you’re ready to embrace your inner super spy then book your Tickets now. The show runs in London, UK until October 6th.
