The lnaugural Secret Sessions@Toronto(Nov.8th-12th,2016)
During the second week in November, an event is coming which will change how Toronto views movies. Drawing inspiration from London’s Secret Cinema and New York’s Sleep No More, The Movie Experience offers the audience an opportunity to live the film.
The Movie Experience is an immersive experience, which combines screenings of cult films in secret locations, with live-action entertainment and theatrics. Audience members are assigned a role and when they arrive on set, actors in character will encourage the audience to participate, giving them tasks and pulling them into the plot.
“Our goal is to create a night that is ridiculously fun,” said Bronwyn Cuthbertson, Managing Director of The Secret Sessions. “This is an interactive theatre event, so the more the audience engages the better the event. This is adult make-believe at its finest and no boring trip to the movie theatre.”
To add to the mystery and surprise, audience members won’t know what movie they are starring in until they arrive at the event. However, if you look close enough, the event poster might provide a hint or two. Do you have a guess?
The inaugural event is happening for five nights only, from November 8-12, 2016. Space is limited and tickets are selling fast, so get your tickets now at http://www.thesecretsessions.ca.

MORE ABOUT THE SECRET SESSIONS LTD
The Founders: We are Jennifer Dysart and Bronwyn Cuthbertson and we are combining their skills and expertise to start a brand new company. Jennifer is an experienced event planner, actor, and choreographer specializing in customer service. She finds the perfect venues and suppliers to make for unforgettable events while ensuring the event talent are ready to rock. Bronwyn is a dynamic strategic planner and logistics expert with experience working for large global events including delivery of two Olympic Games.

Our Company: The Secret Sessions is a Toronto based event company that will deliver unique immersive events with an element of mystery and surprise. We plan to deliver different event series or ‘Sessions’ with the first series being a 360-degree immersive movie viewing experience modelled after the events delivered by the UK company Secret Cinema (http://www.secretcinema.org/).
Why start the Secret Sessions: While living in London, England Bronwyn attended a Secret Cinema event and her mind was blown. She knew that it was something that would be great in the Toronto market and that Jennifer was the partner she needed to bring the idea to life. However, both Jennifer and Bronwyn’s motive behind starting the company goes way beyond introducing this creative concept in Toronto. They have noticed a lack of in-person connections happening and want to bring Torontonians together in a shared experience, inspiring creativity, connections and community. Building community is a pillar of what The Secret Sessions are about. They want people to leave with new friends and feeling that they were apart of something special but without being too cheesy about it.We experienced the Ron Burgundy experience and l would say it was unique ! The interaction with the actors was hilarious and we look forward to future Secret Sessions.
