A Bread Factory Part One15

Directed by Patrick Wang | USA | 2018 | 2h 2m | Starring Tyne Daly, Elisabeth Henry, James Marsters, Nana Visitor

After 40 years of running a community arts space, Dorothea and Greta are suddenly fighting for survival when a celebrity couple – performance artists from China – build a huge complex down the street causing big changes in their small town. A warm and wryly comic humanist drama celebrating the importance of art in every day.


‘There’s nothing else out there like Patrick Wang’s two-part, four-hour labour of love, A Bread Factory, and that’s wholly a good thing.’
Robert Abele, The Wrap

‘Patrick Wang’s A Bread Factory has an immense cast, a deliberate pace and thematic ambition to spare — but it also has a ground-level, plain-spoken modesty that renders it hypnotic.’
Bilge Ebiri, The New York Times

Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford's Cowley Road. We are open 7 days a week. We open the cinema and box office 30 minutes before the scheduled start time of each film, and the Box Office then closes 10 minutes after the film starts. We don’t show adverts, just a couple of trailers, so don't be late as the film itself starts very close to the advertised time!
