Fans survive Docklands

Fans survive Docklands Image

Melbourne’s secretive Underground Cinema briefly came to Docklands last month.

With a following of 6000 members, the immersive cinema experience is movement that has captured the collective imagination of a generation of young hipsters.

Not until the day does anyone know where the next film screening will be.  Not only will it be a surprising location such as Docklands’ expansive Shed 4, but attendees don’t even know what they are going to watch until they are led to their seats through a series of theatrical performances based on the theme of the movie.

Tickets are typically sold out well in advance on anyone knowing where they are going or what they will be watching.

The two-night screening of Epidemic brought 30 volunteer actors and an army of assistants into action on March 23 and 24.

The directions given once patrons alighted the Collins St tram at the ANZ Centre said: “Follow the Gecko Guides. They are dressed in orange. They will get you to safety. Dress to survive. Stay warm and dry. Bring something to protect yourself. Underground Cinema. Your only hope.”
