Today, we were informed that Secret Cinema will open a set of stores as part of the Back to the Future experience. For a short time, you are invited to three of the stores that fans of the film will immediately recognise.
The stores are Ruth’s Frock Shop, Roy’s Records, Lou’s Diner as well as the Elite Beauty Salon.
Why not make Hackney Road your first stop to bask in the nostalgia of the 50s. Buy a burger and milkshake at Lou’s. Get your clothes for the event at Ruth’s and your hair done at the Elite Beauty Salon.
Today Secret Cinema presents Back to the Future announces the Grand reopening of the ‘Hill Valley Stores’ pop-up store to the public on Friday 11th July on East London’s Hackney Road. The Hill Valley Stores will include Ruth’s Frock Shop and Roy’s Records, 1950s fashion and vinyl stock, sourced to give ticket holders and the general public a first glimpse into the world of Secret Cinema presents Back to the Future and a chance to shop for vintage costumes ahead of the event, which runs from the 24th July until the 31st August. Ruth’s own staff will be at hand to provide fashion advice, and Ray is said to have the best taste in music this side of the Californian mountains.
Hill Valley Stores will also host the Elite Beauty Salon with grooming for men and beauty sessions for the ladies while Lou’s Diner next door is serving amazing milkshakes and burgers. There will be dancing lessons, Rock’n’Roll parties and much more to come.
As Hill Valley’s first destination for chic day and evening wear, Hill Valley Stores will give audiences the opportunity to shop and interact directly with the narrative of the upcoming Secret Cinema, and visit 1955 through its very own London corner. The café next door to the Hill Valley Stores will open as ‘Lou’s Diner’ from Back to the Future.
