They're brave men and women, the Secret Cinema team. After narrowly avoiding disaster with their near-catastrophic-but-eventually-excellent Back To The Future event - complete with a 20-set recreation of 1955 Hill Valley - the experiential cinema pioneers have returned with an even bigger film: **Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back **come June 4.

By tackling what many believe to be the best Star Wars movie, Secret Cinema are putting themselves under the critical microscope of some of the most fastidious fans in this or any other galaxy, promising punters transportation "into a richly detailed galactic space opera where they will become part of one of the most ambitious and dreamlike Secret Cinema experiences the UK has ever seen."

As this is Secret Cinema, details are thin on the ground, with the press release announcing the event with an emphasis on the dates - tickets will be available from Wednesday March 18 at 1pm, with the event taking place in London on a number of days between June 4 and August 2 - and not much else. As ever, as soon as more information is released, you'll be the first to know.

On a side note, if you happen to be in Los Angeles this autumn, look out for the Back To The Future Secret Cinema event, which has moved there for its second run to celebrate the film's 30th anniversary. Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, meanwhile, is out in the U.S. on December 18.
