TORCH presents: Ex Machina15
A young programmer wins a competition and is invited to a reclusive tech-genius’s mountain estate. His prize: to assess the capabilities of a stunningly advanced and humanistic robot. Alex Garland’s (writer of 28 Days Later and Sunshine) directorial debut is a stylish and cerebral sci-fi drama which asks: what makes us human?
TORCH presents this screening followed by a panel discussion with actress Sonoya Mizuno (Ex Machina, House of the Dragon), choreographer Arthur Pita (Ex Machina, Persuasion), Dr Meindert Peters (University of Oxford), and chaired by TORCH Director, Professor Wes Williams.
‘This is knowingly seductive sci-fi cinema, its slyly subversive allegiances hidden by the two-way mirror of the silver screen, its androids dreaming of much more than mere electric sheep.’
Mark Kermode, The Observer
‘Ex Machina is a smart, tricksy study of artificial intelligence and tech-sex that explores a credible near-future take on the man-machine relationship.’
Wendy Ide, The Times

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!
