Dance, Girl, DancePG
Friendship, jealousy, and the ruthless world of show business take centre stage after a troupe of chorus girls are made unemployed. One dancer aspires to become a ballerina, while another takes up burlesque – yet both have their eyes set on the same man. A rare Hollywood picture of the era to deal seriously with issues of female artistic struggle from Dorothy Arzner (the only woman to work as a director in the Hollywood studio system of the 1930-40s).
Part of the Oxford International Women’s Festival’s Classic Film Season. Buy tickets to all six classics (in a single transaction) and get 20% off the total cost.
‘The themes are female friendship and a woman’s fulfillment, and it is one of Arzner’s most coherent and accomplished films.’
Dev Kehr, Chicago Reader

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!
