Apur SansarU

Directed by Satyajit Ray | India | 1959 | 1h 57m | Bengali w/ English subtitles | Starring Soumitra Chatterjee, Sharmila Tagore, Alok Chakravarty, Swapan Mukherjee

Apu is in his early twenties, fresh out of college, and aspiring to become a writer. Alongside his professional ambitions, we follow his romantic awakening and his first steps into fatherhood. The extraordinary third chapter of Satyajit Ray’s monumental trilogy is a moving, beautifully shot, and evocatively atmospheric finale.


‘An impressive capstone is put not only upon a touching human drama but also upon the development of a genuine artist’s skill.’
Bosley Crowther, The New York Times

‘Apu is not only the logical last act of the trilogy but a unique work in its own right.’
John Gillett, Sight and Sound Magazine

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!
