Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman15
An unhappy couple and an unambitious banker encounter a lost cat, a giant talking frog, and a tsunami as they try to save both their marriage and – more importantly – Tokyo from a monumental earthquake. A strange and stylish animation pondering large existential questions through small and meaningful interactions, based on a collection of short stories by acclaimed Japanese author Haruki Murakami.
‘It has the ruminative lightness, almost weightlessness, the watercolour delicacy and reticence of the emotions, the sense of the uncanny, the insistent play of erotic possibility and that Murakami keynote: a cat.’
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!
