Underground Cinema Returns

Every now and again I write an article singing the praises of Underground Cinema, the moveable cinematic feast that comes to Melbourne every season. Here I go again.

For those unfamiliar, the premise is simple and rad: the UGC team hold each screening in a different, non-theatre location that reflects the theme of the movie. In the past screenings have taken place in abandoned warehouses (zombies), industrial sub-stations (time travel) and stately manors (aristocracy).

The secret-until-the-night location is pimped out to resemble the world of the movie, with actors dressed as characters moving about the crowd and everyone (that’s YOU) is in costume. Oh, and the film’s kept secret until the curtain raises.

At the last UGC in Docklands the theme was SURVIVE. It was fun, kinda scary and really crazy. Military dudes in fatigues were yelling, zombies jumped out from corners, and as the night went on more people became ‘infected’ and shit go out of control.

Then the movie started – zombie apocalypse fest 28 Days Later. But the audience wasn’t off the hook yet with zombies randomly tearing through the crowd at opportune moments. If 3D glasses were like this they’d have to sell colostomy bags with the popcorn combos.

There’s a video of the night below.

If you like what you see get to undergroundcinema.com.au for the next event on July 21 & 22. The theme is HOPE.
