A Bread Factory Part Two15

Directed by Patrick Wang | USA | 2018 | 1h 59m | Starring Tyne Daly, Elisabeth Henry, James Marsters, Nana Visitor

Community arts centre, The Bread Factory, begins rehearsals for a theatre performance of the ancient Greek play Hecuba. But the real theatrics are outside where the town is being invaded by strange tourists and mysterious tech start-up workers. Patrick Wang’s ambitious two-part drama comes to a close in this deeply empathetic love letter to close-knit cultural communities.

Reviews

‘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

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!
