Underground Cinema: 'The Grand Budapest Hotel'
Step inside Wes Anderson's beloved 2014 film — with food, booze and a screening inside a real hotel.
Pack your suitcases, don your best 30s-style outfit and keep an eye out for that lobby boy — it's time to check into Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel. That's where Underground Cinema is taking viewers to finish out its 2019 season, recreating the glitz, glamour and hijinks of the beloved 2014 movie. Here's hoping that Mendl's chocolates will be on the menu.
Known for its immersive screenings (complete with live recreations and plenty of audience participation), Underground Cinema is going all out for this special event, taking over The Hotel Windsor on Spring Street. Nab a ticket for Friday, November 22, Saturday, November 23 or Sunday, November 24, and you won't just watch the flick starring Ralph Fiennes, Jeff Goldblum, Saoirse Ronan and Tilda Swinton — you'll feel like you've stepped inside it.
Running over more than four hours each night, this suave soiree will serve up a light grazing menu, all the fun and frenzy of the famous fictional hotel presided over by the fastidious M.Gustave, a session of the film, and — for an extra price — a heap of stiff drinks.
Tickets cost $89.95, or $110 if you're keen on a one-on-one experience — although just what the entails hasn't been revealed.
And, like all of Underground Cinema's incredibly popular events, getting in quickly in recommended.
UPDATE, OCTOBER 20: Underground Cinema's first two The Grand Budapest Hotel sessions sold out quickly; however an extra screening has been announced, taking place at 6.30pm on Sunday, November 24. This article has been updated to reflect the new date — and tickets will go on sale at 1pm on Monday, October 21.
