Ticket sales record set by Secret Cinema for its biggest live cinema event presenting Back to The Future.

London-based Secret Cinema has set new ticket sales records as its Secret Cinema presents Back To The Future event sold out its 42,000 tickets in four hours; 17,000 tickets were sold in the first four minutes.

Unsurprisingly, the organisers are potentially looking to extend the run of the show. Standard adult tickets were £53.50.

The largest and “most detailed” Secret Cinema production to date will run July 24-Aug 10.

Tickets initially went on sale at 1pm on Wednesday. However, when the supplier could not cope with the demand, the sale was halted until 1pm Thursday. Secret Cinema switched supplier to See Tickets, which handles major events including the Glastonbury Festival.
