Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel is to be recreated in London for a special screening event. The new movie, which stars Ralph Fiennes as a concierge accused of murder, is set in a fictional hotel in eastern Europe and the set is to be brought to life as part of an immersive cinema experience event in the U.K. capital. Organisers behind the Secret Cinema events have previously recreated classic films for screenings in warehouses, which are often mocked up to look like the films sets complete with props and actors, and now they will do the same for new releases. The Grand Budapest Hotel will be recreated, complete with dining rooms, restaurants and a spa, at a secret location to coincide with the film's U.K. release date in March (14). Secret Cinema's artistic director Fabien Riggall says of the screening, "When you do Dirty Dancing or Lost Boys people have played the film in their minds constantly. But this has the added benefit of being a surprise."
