Amid the social struggles and sectarian violence of 1960s Belfast, a young boy and his family get caught up in the increasing turmoil leading them to face a momentous choice. Kenneth Branagh’s semi-autobiographical coming-of-age drama is a poignant story of love, childhood and family ties, shot in sumptuous black-and-white. Winner of Best Screenplay at the Golden Globes and nominated for seven Academy Awards (including Best Picture) and six BAFTAs (including Best Film).
‘Kenneth Branagh has made a masterpiece…It’s a movie of formal beauty, precise performances, complex and textured writing’
Kevin Maher, The Times
‘There is a terrific warmth and tenderness to Kenneth Branagh’s elegiac, autobiographical movie…spryly written, beautifully acted and shot in a lustrous monochrome.’
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!
