A Thousand and One15
After a spell in prison, a young mother living in 1990s New York battles to rebuild her family. She reconnects with her young son and, fearful of losing him again, decides to rescue him by kidnapping him from the foster care system. A.V. Rockwell’s triumphant debut is a heartfelt story of survival, strength, and the power of motherhood. Grand Jury Prize Winner at Sundance Film Festival 2023.
‘Come for Taylor’s breakout performance, stay for a tender, confidently told story of Black motherhood and sacrifice. Rockwell is one to watch.’
Amon Warmann, Empire Magazine
‘A heartfelt snapshot of a life that reflects the experiences of so many real people, this is an impressive debut for Rockwell and Taylor – what comes next for both will be worth your attention..’
Cheyenne Bunsie, Little White Lies

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!
