Just as ex-detective John McClane lands in LA to spend Christmas with his estranged wife, terrorists infiltrate a high-flying business festive party taking the CEO and staff hostage. Intelligent German criminal Hans Gruber is the culprit and McClane’s wife is one of the captives. Can McClane overpower the terrorists while saving his marriage and Christmas at the same time? Yippee ki-yay!
‘Only the hardest of hearts could fail to enjoy the great 80s action classic…with uproarious explosions, deafening shootouts and smart-alec tag lines following the bad guys getting shot.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘The very pinnacle of the ’80s action movie, and if it’s not the greatest action movie ever made, then it’s damn close.’
Andrew Collins, Empire Magazine

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!
