In the barren expanse of the desert, a mysterious gunslinger, donned in black, embarks on a transformative journey in search of enlightenment. Joined by his young son, he navigates a landscape fraught with a succession of bizarre and symbolic trials, each forcing him to confront the fundamental nature of his own existence. Visionary Chilean filmmaker, Alejandro Jodorowsky concocts a surreal acid Western using evocative imagery, profound symbolism, and philosophical storytelling.
‘It’s tempting to say they don’t make films like this any more, but I’m not sure anyone has ever made them like Jodorowsky.’
Ed Potton, The Times
‘It’s a bizarre head-trip festival of occult psychedelia, heatstroke visuals, Age-of-Aquarius nude dancing and violence through poster-paint fake blood splattered about the place.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

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!
