The Vanishing Point creates immersive site-specific cinema experiences. Using the fiction of a film as a departure point, we invite the audience to become lost in the environment with theatre, live music and mixed media. Our events strive to make cinema an interactive, unpredictable and fun experience.

Our immersive events have featured in Time Out, SFX, Guardian film blog contributor Tony Paley's 'Capital Celluloid' blog, Design Week, Cinephile and Spoonfed.
