Barbie12A

Directed by Greta Gerwig | USA | 2022 | 1h 54m | Starring Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, Emma Mackey, Michael Cera, Helen Mirren

In Barbie Land, perfection reigns supreme. That is, unless you find yourself grappling with an existential crisis… or happen to be Ken. When Barbie ventures beyond her idyllic world and embarks on a real-life journey, she encounters both the joys and challenges of living among humans. Acclaimed writer and director Greta Gerwig (Little Women, Lady Bird) brilliantly breathes life into the dazzlingly pink universe of Barbie in this sly comedy, starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.

Reviews

‘Weird and wonderful, it’s one of the funnest and funniest movies ever made – and is brilliantly spearheaded by actress and producer Margot Robbie, along with writer-director Greta Gerwig.’
★★★★★
Charlotte O’Sullivan, Evening Standard

‘Barbie is one of the most inventive, immaculately crafted and surprising mainstream films in recent memory — a testament to what can be achieved within even the deepest bowels of capitalism.’
★★★★★
Clarisse Loughrey, The Independent

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!
