A strait-laced literature professor leaves New York to get away from her husband and file for divorce. Out on the West Coast, in Reno, she soon catches the eye of a free-spirited young woman. A groundbreaking release in 1985, Donna Deitch’s swooning romantic drama was made on a shoestring budget and went on to become an important touchstone for lesbian cinema.
‘The story is not sensationalistic, although its love scene could not be more emotional. It`s a gentle story of someone being brought in from the cold.’
Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune

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!
