Beyond Cinema – the good folks who brought the Mad Hatter's tea party to the Botanic Gardens and recreated Titanic on Sydney Harbour – have turned their fantastical minds to an immersive sing-a-long edition of Les Misérables.

Their plan is to bring Tom Hooper's 2012 film – which is based on the 1980 stage musical by writer Alain Boublil and composer Claude-Michel Schönberg – to Surry Hills' John Painter Theatre. This unique space will be transformed into a slice of 19th century France. You'll be invited to dress up accordingly and, once the film starts rolling, belt out all your favourite tunes – from "I Dreamed a Dream" to "Do You Hear the People Sing?" to "Castle on a Cloud".

Fighting a war (and singing for hours) is thirsty work, and luckily there'll be a bar on site — serving both food and drinks.

This isn't Beyond Cinema's only upcoming production, either. The busy collective of film buffs and story tellers is bringing The Great Gatsby to Sydney on Sunday, August 19, and has also promised a sing-a-long version of The Greatest Showman – at some point in the not too distant future

Beyond Cinema's 'Les Miserables' will be held at John Painter Theatre, 1/55 Foveaux Street, Surry Hills, on Saturday, December 15, from 2–5pm and 7–10pm. Tickets are on sale now.
