Claudine15

Directed by John Berry | USA | 1975 | 1h 32m | Starring Diahann Carroll, James Earl Jones, Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs, Tamu Blackwell, David Kruger

Claudine is a single mother who works as a maid for affluent families in the suburbs of New York. One day she meets Roop, a charismatic but irresponsible garbage collector and romance quickly ensues. However, Claudine soon begins to have doubts whether Roop fits into her wider family life. Directed by the formerly blacklisted filmmaker John Berry and starring an Oscar-nominated performance by lead actress Diahann Carroll, this rom-com with a social conscience provides an empathetic chronicle of Black working-class struggle, all set to Curtis Mayfield’s soulful soundtrack.

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!
