Au Revoir les Enfants12A
A heartbreaking story of friendship and devastating loss concerning two 12-year-old boys living in a Catholic boarding school in Nazi-occupied France. Based on events from writer-director Malle’s own childhood, the film is a subtle, richly detailed story of courage, cowardice, and tragic awakening. Winner of the Golden Lion at the 1987 Venice Film Festival.
‘Without being sentimental, the drama is incredibly moving as the muted light plays over young faces that are about to face the unknowable evils of the adult world.’ Kate Muir, The Times
‘Every line, every scene, every shot, is composed with mastery. It has to be seen.’ ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

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!
