Brian and CharlesPG

Directed by Jim Archer | UK | 2022 | 1h 30m | Starring David Earl, Louise Brealey, Nina Sosanya, Jamie Michie

A lonely inventor in rural Wales spends his days building unconventional contraptions that rarely work. Undeterred by his lack of success, he attempts his biggest project yet – a seven-foot tall, walking, talking robot made up of junk. Comedian David Earl co-writes and stars in this quirky yet heart-warming British comedy.


‘Happiness, loneliness and silliness come together in this startling emotional adventure…It’s the bromance of the year.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘The result has homemade charm to spare, proving delightfully ridiculous but also poignant.’
Mark Kermode, The Observer

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!
