Eric Ravilious: Drawn to WarPG
The first feature-length documentary about one of Britain’s greatest landscape artists, Eric Ravilious, who was killed in a plane crash while on commission as Official War Artist in 1942. A touching look at a previously overlooked artist told through previously unseen private correspondence, interviews, and rare archive film.
Join us on Saturday 3rd September for National Cinema Day, with tickets available at the discounted rate of £3 each (purchase tickets as normal through our website, and the discount will be automatically applied at the checkout).
‘The film makes a case that Ravilious should be regarded, alongside the likes of Turner and Constable, as one of Britain’s great landscape artists.’
Wendy Ide, The Observer
‘This fine overview does convince you of his singularity, while also coaxing you into the sunlit, subtly clouded uplands of his lost world.’
Tim Robey, the Telegraph

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!
