Now you can star in cult movie classics in Toronto

Have you ever been watching your fave cult classic film and thought, man I would love to have been on that set? Well now you can, and then you can party with the other actors on set afterwards thanks to the folks behind The Secret Sessions.

The Movie Experience is a an immersive event where you find out the location and the cult film on the day of the event (the next session happens November 8-12), as well as the character you'll be playing. Once your ticket is purchased, you receive a private email with dress code and prep notes.

After that it's costume, makeup, lights, camera, action! Ticket holders are thrown onto a real film set and to keep things are close to reality as possible, the whole thing is lightly catered. There's a cash bar also, but no free drinks to ensure you don't get hammered during your key scene.

Actors and non-actors (there's no training required for this) will be on set for a total of four hours, and then you can go back to your trailer and tweet about your cast mates to make sure you make it into People next week.
