After her estranged husband’s murder, a glamorous jet-setter is pursued by three crooks who want the money her husband stole from them. With her life in jeopardy, she turns to charming stranger for help, but soon discovers he isn’t who he claims to be. The best Hitchcock film that Hitchcock never made, Stanley Donen’s Charade is a delightful mystery that shines with humour, suspense, and style – a glittering emblem of Old Hollywood glamor.
‘This absolutely wonderful comedy thriller from Stanley Donen (co-director, with Gene Kelly, of On the Town and Singin’ in the Rain) nearly out-Hitchcocks Hitchcock.’
Tony Sloman, Radio Times
‘Shot by Charles Lang, one of the greatest American cinematographers to ever live, Charade is some sort of miraculous entertainment, self-aware and self-parodying yet never distancing or detached.’
Chris Cabin, Slant Magazine

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!
