Two heartsick Hong Kong cops, both jilted by ex-lovers, cross paths at the Midnight Express take-out diner, only to fall in love with the restaurant’s mysterious and alluring clientele. This gloriously shot and unexpectedly charming romance is one of the defining works of 1990s cinema and the film that made Wong Kar Wai an instant icon.
‘Chungking Express ravishingly, seductively exudes the immediacy of everyday life as its spins its classically timeless tales of love lost and almost regained.’
Kevin Thomas, The LA Times
‘Wong’s dreamlike tone and Doyle’s stunning cinematography make this strange love story a joy to watch.’
Kim Newman, Empire 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!
