The Shutter Island Experience
Explore a historic quarantine station, solve a mystery and pretend you're in this twisty Martin Scorsese movie.
For Beyond Cinema's latest immersive experience, it's letting you unleash your inner sleuth, explore a historic Sydney spot and follow in Leonardo DiCaprio's footsteps, when it recreates Martin Scorsese's mind-bending 2010 thriller Shutter Island.
Your experience starts at Circular Quay, where you'll board a ferry headed to Manly's old Quarantine Station — which, for the purposes of the movie-themed fun, will be rebadged as Ashecliff Hospital circa 1954. That's where you'll find US Marshall Teddy Daniels. With his partner Chuck Aule, he's trying to find missing patient Rachel Solando. Actors will play the parts and, as you explore creepy sites and even a lighthouse, you'll help solve the mystery, too.
If you've seen the flick, you'll know that everything won't be quite as it seems — so keep your wits about you.
Once the interactive part of the event is over, you'll settle in to watch the end of the movie. If you're feeling thirsty or peckish, there'll be a bar onsite, plus food to buy.
The Shutter Island Experience takes place on Sunday, November 17 across three four-hour-long sessions starting at 3pm, 4.30pm and 6pm, with tickets costing $85 per person.
