In the harsh winter of 1964 Massachusetts, young secretary Eileen becomes enchanted by Rebecca, the glamorous new counsellor at the prison where she works. However, their budding friendship takes a dark and unexpected turn when Rebecca unveils a sinister secret. Adapted from Ottessa Moshfegh’s award-winning novel, William Oldroyd’s highly anticipated follow-up to Lady Macbeth constructs an atmospheric and intricately twisted tale of ominous obsessions.
‘The film is a pulpy phantasmagoria of fear and desire, offering visions of queer ecstasy within the confines of multiple prisons.’
Kyle Turner, Slant Magazine
‘The dark sense of humour from the novel is wonderfully translated. An impressively crafted noir that skilfully captures isolation, dread and yearning.’
Katherine McLaughlin, Little White Lies

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!
