Emily15

Directed by Frances O’Connor | UK | 2022 | 2h 10m | Starring Emma Mackey, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Adrian Dunbar, Alexandra Dowling, Fionn Whitehead

In 19th-century England, Emily lives in a world which demands that she remain obedient, and dutiful. But she has no interest in staying silent and, yearning to make her voice heard, starts writing a novel. A ravishing period drama that paints an atmospheric and incisive portrait of the author of literary classic ‘Wuthering Heights’, Emily Brontë.

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!
