We are very sad to say that Rebecca Hallsmith, the owner of the Ultimate Picture Palace since 2011, passed away peacefully this morning surrounded by friends and family.

Becky's passion for film and determination as a businesswoman has made the UPP what it is today; a thriving part of Oxford’s vibrant cultural community. She had been in hospital receiving treatment for cancer and will be greatly missed by all the staff, volunteers, and customers who knew her well.

The cinema was in her thoughts right up until the end, and Becky has ensured that the business is safe and will continue as usual.

Rebecca Hallsmith RIP (1957–2018)
