License to Kill: Secret Cinema returns with ‘Casino Royale’ experience

Bond, James Bond...

Secret Cinema has announced that they’ll be providing James Bond lovers with the chance to follow in the iconic spy’s footsteps for the first time.

The immersive cinema experts will recreate Casino Royale at a secret London location next year, transforming it into the world of espionage and high-stakes action that featured in Daniel Craig’s 2006 debut as the legendary character.

The event, which starts in May next year, will see fans being recruited as part of ‘Operation Wild Card’, where they will join either Q Branch or M Branch. Each attendee will be handed an alias, a specific dress code and training advice before they enter into the world of 007.

Angus Jackson, Creative Director of Secret Cinema Presents Casino Royale, said: “We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to bring-to-life such an iconic film franchise and character.

Casino Royale is a rich territory for us to explore from the characters to the plot and locations. Our audience will be given the opportunity to understand what it takes to embody modern espionage – bringing them closer to the Bond experience than ever before.”
