The Prince Charles Cinema will screen The Gallery interactive film as an official side event of the London Games Festival on Thursday 6th April at 6.30 pm.


This innovation in the cinema experience has thrilled audiences at film festivals in France and the UK. It showcases the convergence of Film and Video Games with the audience participating in how the story unfolds.

Maybe it’s because we are Londoners.

The Gallery was born and bred in London. Writer-Director, Paul was born in London, schooled in London, graduated from King’s College and The Gallery was filmed and created in London. Producers Neville and Sagarika Raschid have lived in the city since the late ‘70s.

Synopsis: An art curator is held hostage by a portraitist who threatens to detonate a bomb unless their demands are met. 'The Gallery' contains two interactive narratives - set in 1981 (with a female protagonist) and 2021 (with a male protagonist). Both eras are significant periods of socio-political unrest in Britain and there are distinct similarities and differences across the two stories. The viewer must make decisions in a bid to better understand and escape their captor. However, it soon becomes apparent that not only the life of the protagonist hinges on these decisions, but also the lives of others.

How it works: For Interactive Cinema screenings, audiences will make decisions by voting as a group using glowsticks.
