Underground Cinema and Secret Foodies present Decadence

Posted by


When the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival kicks off this week there’ll be hundreds of events vying for your time and stomach space (you can read our guide to thrifty picks here). Yet among all the masterclasses and degustations one will be a little different: the aptly titled Decadence.

Described as equal parts food and film, the event is the result of Underground Cinema and Secret Foodies teaming up for the very first time. Some background: Underground Cinema holds immersive film screenings in different locations they design to look like a film set, and everyone comes in costume. Secret Foodies is a Sydney-based society that hold secret dinners all across the Harbour City.

These two secretive sects have come together to make Decadence, the first event of its kind in Australia where food meets film (and secrets).

Being such a hush hush shindig details are scant, but here’s what we can reveal: the theme will be 1950s, it will be progressive, and diners are advised to keep an open mind (and a Bible).

Not a lot to go on, but if past UGC events and Secret Foodies’ reputation for a tasty time are anything to go by, this is going to be a cracker.

Decadence is happening on Sunday 3 March at 4.45pm. Location TBC.
Tickets $165+bf, for more information visit secretsquirrel.iwannaticket.com.au.
