DOS: No 3D, No HFR; a new format entirely! Can't Post

For those of you in London, you should write to Future Cinema and have them do a Hobbit-themed cinematic experience. Have you heard of Future Cinema?

Basically you pay 40 bucks to enter a reconstructed setting from the film (in this case maybe Mirkwood or Laketown). They have 100-some-odd actors and professional designers/etc. They ask event-goers to dress up (hobbits/dwarves/elves, etc.) so as to blend in with the hired actors. They have movie-related events/meals/games and places for you to explore/missions for you to do; and it all concludes with a screening of the film (DOS).

Their idea is to immerse audiences not through technology but through set-design/role-playing/atmosphere before (and sometimes very subtlely during) the film. I would love to see a Hobbit/LOTR-themed one! Right now they're doing The Shawshank Redemption, and they do really cool things (like in the middle of the film when Andy is rewarded a beer, "prison guards" walk around and give everyone in the audience a beer!)

Here's my blog post about it. Has anyone gone to one of these?
