Admission: $25.00 (See below for details on limited-time discount code)

Bok Building
800 Mifflin St., Philadelphia

The Secret Cinema will participate in a multi-presenter program called Assembly on Thursday, November 29, at the historic Bok Building in South Philadelphia. The event is produced by the website Atlas Obscura.

Our participation will be limited to showing a rare short film made by University of Pennsylvania students in 1967, along with a brief illustrated talk by Jay Schwartz on the history of the Secret Cinema.

The ticket price is admittedly on the high side for a Secret Cinema event -- $25.00 -- but will include several other interesting presentations, an opportunity to see the Bok Building's beautiful Art Deco auditorium, and, we're told, "complimentary deluxe movie treats."

However, this being Black Friday weekend, Atlas Obscura is offering a $10 discount for any tickets bought by Monday evening using the discount code "blackfriday."

Tickets are available here.

Atlas Obscura's full announcement for Assembly (with details on the whole program) can be seen here.
