Compartment No. 615
A young Finnish woman living in Moscow decides to visit the distant arctic port of Murmansk for her studies. Aboard the train, she is forced to share a cabin with a loutish Russian miner. Initially they don’t get on but as the journey progresses the two develop an unexpected bond. Winner of the Grand Prix at last year’s Cannes Film Festival, Finnish director Juho Kuosmanen’s romantic drama is a bittersweet tale of adventure, self-discovery, and human connection.
‘Beautifully believable performances from Haarla and Borisov add emotional weight, rivalling the nuanced naturalistic charm of Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy in Richard Linklater’s Before trilogy.’
Mark Kermode, The Observer
‘It’s the rapport between the actors – or the anti-rapport, to start with – that makes this such a winning diversion.’
Tim Robey, The Telegraph

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!
