FAQs  

Welcome to the secret family.
You are about to experience something truly unique.

To get the most out of the night, make sure you arrive according to the time slot provided when you register for your character. Seek out experiences and participate. Do everything on offer. Lose your inhibitions, try something different and embrace a new world. Your experience is partly down to how much you put into it.

What happens on the night?

Our experiences explore one of the forgotten pleasures in a time with constant access to information: secrets. What we can promise is 3+ hours of remarkable surprises and pure disbelief. Secret storylines. Iconic locations. Memorable characters.

Will there be a screening?

Not in the traditional sense. Premiering our first Secret World based on a TV series, we are once again pushing the boundaries of immersive experiences. As such, the traditional screening will be replaced with a unique experience unlike anything seen at past Secret Worlds.

How will this differ from past Secret Worlds?

Blending performance and special effects, Secret Cinema presents a new re-imagined theatrical format. Expect more action and more adventure.

How does the matinee show differ from the evening show?

The matinee performance is designed to suit a younger audience, ages 15+. This allows us to open our doors to a wider range of fans who can all benefit from this experience. As such, the content of the show will be adjusted to be less intense, graphic or unsettling.

Do I need to know/watch the series before I attend?

Our Secret Worlds are open for all to explore, however, the more you know about the series the more you will get out of the experience. Therefore we recommend catching up on the highlights of the series before you attend.

Which season is this based on?

This Secret World is being designed with an emphasis on the yet-to-be-released Season 3 narratives yet will feature key moments from Seasons 1 and 2 as well. You can watch Season 3 on Netflix from July 4th onwards.

Do I need to go in character?

Yes. You are a resident of Hawkins. You will be expected to dress to blend in with the other residents of the town.

Ahead of the event, ticket holders will be given exclusive access to a secret web experience preparing you for the evening. This will give you all the information you need. After registering, you will be able to build your character and unlock the dress code. This is your chance to get creative.

It’s an impressive sight and you’ll want to be a part of it.
