Pre-Code cinema was often a dangerous game of one-upmanship. Warner Bros took one look at MGM’s highly risqué Red-Headed Woman and decided to respond with this jaw-dropping sensation. Barbara Stanwyck stars as sexually determined young dame who turns the tables on the men and uses her feminine charms to create a better life for herself – one man at a time.
Our screening of Baby Face on Saturday 26th November (15:30) with be preceded by a pre-recorded introductory talk by season co-curator and film historian Pamela Hutchinson.

Plan your visit
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!
