Day for Night12A
Neurotic actors, drunken divas, and cats refusing to act plague a committed film director as he struggles to complete his film due to a myriad of crises, both personal and professional, among the cast and crew. A breezy yet affectionate farcical comedy from François Truffaut about the joys and strife of filmmaking which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1973.
‘[An] exhilarating, Oscar-winning celebration of the movie-making process.’
David Parkinson, Radio Times
‘It’s a hilarious and informative movie, and in the pantheon of films about filmmaking, it strikes a neat balance between the operatic neuroses of ‘8 1/2’ and the warm, pastel-hued nostalgia of ‘Singin’ in the Rain’.’
David Jenkins, Time Out

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!
