London | Spring 2017
In 2017, thousands journeyed to the cobbled streets of Montmartre to the world-famous Moulin Rouge for a triumphant night of truth, beauty, freedom, and above all things, love…
Some joined the passionate bohemians and raised a glass of absinthe to the revolution. Others rehearsed backstage for a potentially life-changing audition. But in the end, everyone came together for an evening of ravishment at the legendary Parisian cabaret.
All Creatures of the Underworld were encouraged to create and find themselves through expression. From creating and then selling their artwork to auditioning for Zidler himself!
Children of the Revolution, assemble for a bohemian protest. Hundreds joined together to sing for their belief in love above all else!
Secret boudoirs were available for the brave to seek out and find. What happened within remains to a secret only to those who entered.
The final reveal was the Moulin Rouge itself... All Parisian residents were ushered into the venue for spectacular event to never be forgotten!
Had a truly amazing experience at @secretcinema's Moulin Rouge. A magnificent, opulent, tremendous, stupendous time was had!
Just home from the best experience ever. Aristocrats, whores, freaks and thieves. It can only be #moulinrouge @secretcinema
Thank you @secretcinema for a magnificent, opulent, tremendous, stupendous, gargantuan, bedazzlement, a sensual ravishment
The best yet - think a cinema, theatre show, cabaret and night club all under one roof
A liberal dream come true... A sensory overload
Every little corner is crammed with some incredible detail, detail made all the better by the enthusiasm with which the audience is partaking
In a time of contemporary troubles and need for love, we created the Society of Love to which all participants belong. Reflecting the vision that all are welcome, we worked with the charity Help Refugees raising over £20,000 and an impassioned Zidler spoke of welcoming refugees and inclusivity and tolerance in the Society.
Over £20,000 raised
We chose to recreate Montmartre in an area in need of regeneration, engaging the community as part of their Secret Youth project via youth workshops, work experience and job opportunities.
