By now, the folks behind Beyond Cinema are real pros at throwing a fine film-themed shindig. They've thrown an extravagant Great Gatsby party at a mansion in northern Sydney, held a Mad Hatter-style tea party in the Royal Botanic Garden and recreated Titanic on Sydney Harbour — and this November, Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge! is getting the immersive theatre treatment.

This time around, guests will be carried away to a cabaret club in 1899 Paris. At Harold Zidler's world-famous house of risqué entertainment, you can expect dancing, singing and absinthe drinking. These events generally don't focus on the actual film screening, but usually there's the option to purchase a film ticket at an additional cost if you want to relive the whole heartbreaking whirlwind of Satine and Christian. The exact details of the event are still scarce, but if you've seen the film 608 times, you'll know what to expect. Fancy dress is, of course, a must.

The exact date and location has not yet been revealed, but you can sign up to be the first to get these details — along with pre-sale tickets — over here. Or, if you're keen to book similar tickets right now, another Beyond Cinema is already set to transport you to 19th century France with an immersive singalong screening of Les Miserables this December.

Beyond Cinema's Moulin Rouge! event will be held sometime in November at yet-to-be-revealed Sydney location. You can sign up for more info here
