Shadows on the Wall Reviews Secret Cinema’s Immersive “Back to the Future” Experience in the U.K.
From Shadows on the Wall: You enter Secret Cinema’s Back to the Future event the same way Marty McFly arrives in 1955 Hill Valley: through the Peabody family’s barn, then through the houses to the town square, which has been recreated in astonishing detail in an apparent space-time rift right between Westfield Stratford and the Olympic Stadium.
The entire town has been lovingly recreated, and it all works: you can get your hair cut at Elite Salon, watch Cattle Queen of Montana at the cinema and send a letter to a friend. You can also buy clothes, comic books, records and of course burgers, fries and milkshakes at Lou’s Cafe. You can wander through the classrooms and lockers of Hill Valley High School, then into the gym, where the “Enchantment Under the Sea” dance is underway, complete with spiked punch.
