1. Organisers alerted ticket holders by text message 90 minutes before the event was due to start. Unfortunately, they had told ticket holders not to bring their mobile phones, so…
3. Some of whom had travelled a long way to be there, and now found themselves stranded in east London, wearing 1950s fancy dress.
4. Some had come a really long way.
5. People were pretty pissed off.
10. Ticked off at the lack of communication.
11. And just generally quite peeved.
13. Others just wanted to vent at the company’s apparent disorganisation.
Others put forward more dramatic explanations.
15. People pointed out that the set didn’t seem to have been fully built yet.
18. But, in amongst the rage, there were people willing to see the funny side.
19. And this guy summed up the whole sorry affair in one sentence.
Organisers have offered ticket holders a refund. They said in a statement on Facebook:
“As most of you know we have proven time and again that we put our hearts into every production. This has been a hugely ambitious endeavour and we are deeply sorry for those of you that planned your weeks around this particular night. We know the effort that goes into attending our events and we understand the utter disappointment you are all feeling. We are truly feeling it too.”
Secret Cinema has been cancelled for a second night.
