The Secret Sessions returns this month with Ghostbusters – The Movie Experience. This slime filled 80s adventure will bring to life the iconic film. Audience members will be transported to New York City in 1984 for a chance to visit Ghostbusters headquarters and meet the four men who are saving the city from paranormal activity.
The Secret Sessions: The Movie Experience brings classic film to life by fusing together live theatre and film. Guests enter a participatory world where professional actors bring scenes from the film to life.
I have attended two of their previous events. The Secret Sessions: Casablanca last Spring, and last Halloween The Secret Sessions: Shawn of the Dead – both of which were a tonne of fun. The idea is for audiences to be transported to the film’s location, meet the characters in the film, and be fully engaged in the story. The film plays on a big-screen, but it is the immersive quality of the event that draws crowds back each time.
Ghostbusters – The Movie Experience welcomes back talented theatre actors Matthew Nadeau from The Secret Sessions: Anchorman and Shaun of the Dead performances, Sean C Dwyer, who portrayed Prince Humperdinck in The Secret Sessions: The Princess Bride, award-winning comedian Julian Frid, and award-winning theatre actor Jonathon Sconza who has appeared in all running Secret Sessions shows and events.
Ghostbusters – The Movie Experience is sure to bring a lot of fun times to audiences of all ages. The event will run from October 17 -20 at 7pm and October 24 – 27 at 7pm; with additional 2pm family-friendly matinees on October 20 and 27. Tickets are now on sale for $39/each. Location of the event is The Redwood Theatre. Dress is 1980s business or casual. Come prepared to join in the fun and hunt a few ghosts!
