Prior PHP 7.0 you can use this code:

<?php
$cl
= function($add) { return $this->a + $add; };

$cl->bindTo($newthis);
return
call_user_func_array($cl, [10]);
?>

But this bind the closure permanently! Also read the article for Closure::bindTo() about binding closures from static context.

You can also access private data:

<?php
class Value {
    private
$value;

    public function
__construct($value) {
       
$this->value = $value;
    }
}

$foo = new Value('Foo');
$bar = new Value('Bar');

$closure = function () { var_dump($this->value); };
$closure->call($foo);
$closure->call($bar);
?>

Output:
string(3) "Foo"
string(3) "Bar"
