In terms of scale and elaborateness, no translation of the hit Netflix series comes close to Stranger Things: The Drive-Into Experience, which is currently operating in Downtown Los Angeles until March 2021. What they were able to accomplish, especially during a time when health and safety protocols prohibit any of the kind of traditional experiences you might expect, is staggering. It’s an unforgettable journey to Hawkins, Indiana. – Collider

Secret Cinema, which handled the creative duties, has crafted a truly transformative space, especially when you consider all of the physical and public health restrictions they must be stuck with – TimeOut LA
We worked with Secret Cinema to bring Stranger Things: the Drive-Into Experience to life in LA under pandemic regulations. Working with content from Netflix, elements from our previous London show (Secret Cinema presents Stranger Things) and new animation, we created a drive-through experience like no other.
Content creation and creative direction was finalised by the Mesmer team in London before being handed over to Caite Hevner and her team stateside. Mesmer stayed on hand to re-edit, re-animate and provide technical support throughout the process.
