Boiling Point15

Directed by Phillip Barantini | UK | 2021 | 1h 35m | Starring Stephen Graham, Vinette Robinson, Alice Feetham, Jason Flemyng

On the busiest night of the year at one of the hottest restaurants in London, head chef Andy has to contend with tensions among his staff, the demands of customers, and a surprise visit from the health inspector. An electrifying pressure cooker drama wrought with tension and shot in a single take.


‘The film seldom takes its foot off the gas…Uncut Gems by way of Kitchen Nightmares: what’s not to love?’ 
Jack King, Little White Lies

‘There’s a barreling momentum to the filmmaking that feels true to the cut and thrust of restaurant life’
Guy Lodge, Variety

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!
