Beau Is Afraid15
Living alone in a rundown downtown apartment and beset by paranoid anxiety, a middle-aged man prepares to visit his mother and inadvertently embarks on a mind-bending odyssey to confront his darkest fears. Academy Award winner Joaquin Phoenix stars in this brilliantly baffling psychological epic by the director of modern horror classics Hereditary and Midsommer.
‘What began as a comically exaggerated paranoid farce ends as an audacious slice of surreal, Charlie Kaufman-esque purgatorial art, likely to draw admirers as much as a sense of alienation.’
John Nugent, Empire Magazine
‘At points, it’s a stress-watch to rival the Safdie bros’ nerve-shredder Uncut Gems. But it’s also a deeply funny Freudian head-shag, laden with Jewish guilt and unresolved mummy issues.’
Jordan Farley, Total Film

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!
