Throw on some self-lacing Nikes, dust off that old Grays Sports Almanac and hook up the Flux capacitor, it's time to set off for Hill Valley, California.

For the last 7 years the hard-working folk of UK-based Secret Cinema have been creating the most immersive cinematic experiences around.

They set up Coney Island amusements in London Fields park for a screening of the Warriors in 2009 and they played One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in the abandoned Princess Louise Hospital in 2010 but by the sounds of things, their next project might just be their most ambitious yet... they won't even need wheels.

The organizers are planning to rebuild Marty McFly's hometown of Hill Valley, California for a unique run of screenings of Back to the Future from July to August this year in a secret London location, in what is already being called their "most epic and detailed production to date".

And yes... they have a Delorean...

The iconic DMC-12 will be on hand to take people back and forth between the 55' and 85' time zones through a series of the town's alleyways. To cap off each night, a special Enchantment Under the Sea Prom Dance is scheduled for after each screening. No word yet, however, on whether Chuck Berry will play.

The Secret Cinema founder Fabien Riggall:

We want the audiences to forget their current world and take an adventure. A section of the audience shall play out the narrative of Marty McFly, being thrown into a time machine and transported into another existence and others will become part of the 1955 and 1985 world before.

As far as these sort of things go, there's really nobody out there quite like Secret Cinema, and this one really does sound unmissable. Screenings take place from July 24th to August 10th and you can pick up tickets here from Wednesday.
