Immerse Yourself in Film: 360 Screenings May 31 & June 1 2013 in Toronto

From a media release:

Lose Your Sanity at 360 Screenings
Tickets are 90% sold-out for immersive screening series
May 31 & June 1, 2013


Toronto, ON-
360 Screenings has expanded their popular interactive screening series to include two days and three separate productions on May 31st and June 1st, each offering the same immersive experience.  A fusion of theatre, cinema and cocktail party, 360 Screenings will be celebrating their one year anniversary with their largest event to-date with a record number of ticket sales.

360 Screenings allow audience members to become fully immersed in a beloved film of the past through different interactive experiences. Participants could find themselves leaving letters for friends and families during a zombie apocalypse, having a French lesson for their day in Paris, learning to make soap in an underground fight club or connecting to the other-side with the help of a psychic medium. Each production is held at a historic Toronto building, which is revealed 24 hours prior to the event. The film is kept secret until the conclusion of the evening with the actual screening. Actors, set designs and familiar scenes are re-created while audience members attempt to guess the film.

Clues through the 360 Screenings Twitter and Facebook pages leading up to the event lend themselves to the film's identity and encourage participants to interact before the event has even started. Past 360 Screenings have included Ghost, Fight Club, 28 Days Later and Amélie.

About 360 Screenings:
360 Screenings began in May 2012 with a production of Jerry Zucker’s GHOST. The film and 360 experience played to a sold out audience. 360 Screenings produce events that combine live performance with traditional film viewing. Beloved films of the past set the stage at historic and unique venues while audiences are instructed on what to wear, and where to show up only 24 hours prior to the screening.  The film is kept hidden until the night of the event. From the moment audiences arrive they ‘step into the film.’  The venue, which could be a loft, a field, or any unique location, is furnished entirely to reflect the film's environment. Part cocktail party, part live performance event, part film screening, 360 Screenings is changing the way Canadians enjoy cinema. They invite film lovers of all walks to step into the film.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
