Secret Cinema Does Back to the Future

Secret Cinema’s Back for the Future was incredible and I was so proud to be a part of it. They recreated Hill Valley on a huge scale, including the Peabody Farm, Town Hall and Enchantment Under the Sea Dance at Hill Valley High School. Working for the Secret Post Office, I was employed as a 1950’s Post Office worker. We encouraged people to send mail to each other across the site, and then hand delivered it, with some hilarious results.

Here’s what they had to say about it:‘The greatest BTTF experience ever!’ Bob Gale
Secret Cinema brought Back to the Future to life in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford, London in July and August 2014. 80,000 travelled to 1955 to celebrate 70 years of Hill Valley’s infamous clock tower, making this the biggest event of its kind in history.Mayor Red Thomas was excited to meet the legendary Bob Gale, who hailed the 1955 Fair the ‘greatest…ever’.

The Hill Valley Fair Archives are now open to public: find the best pictures here, and a little peak at the upcoming film here.

Hill Valley was built featuring Otis Peabody’s Farm, suburban bungalows, Hill Valley High School, Lou’s Café and nearly 20 shops, offering a unique insight into the bustling town life, complete with a recently inaugurated Telephone Exchange System and the Secret Post Office. Residents and visitors were transported into the world of 1955 where, in the shadow of the life-size clock tower, Marvin Berry and the Starlighters headed up the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance, come rain or shine. Local rock’n’rollers Jarvis Cocker and Alex Kapranos joined Marvin on stage to send Hill Valley off to another fantastic year.

We are very excited to launch the Hill Valley Stores, where you can purchase your favourite memorabilia from the Fair online.

Thank you to all those who attended the Fair. 1955 has been an amazing year for Hill Valley and its famous clock tower. Exciting news about the future will be coming soon. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
