A former pilot who has developed a fear of flying finds himself burdened with the responsibility of landing a passenger plane safely when its crew fall sick due to food poisoning. Crammed with slapstick routines, puns, one-liners, and surrealist humour, this side-splitting spoof of 1970s disaster movies has become a much-loved comedy classic.
Our screening on Friday 8 July will be introduced by comedian Celya AB, part of the Oxford Comedy Festival.
‘There’s hardly a second that passes without an assault by a wickedly accurate spoof, cringe-inducing pun or inspired sight gag, and the years have not diminished the film’s dumb appeal.’
John Ferguson, Radio 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!
