Aided by the sorcerer Merlin, Arthur Pendragon pulls the mythical sword Excalibur from the stone and fulfils his destiny to be King of Britain. However, he faces greater tests ahead in pursuit of love, the Holy Grail, and his nation’s survival. John Boorman’s opulent and surreal adaptation of the Arthurian legend began development as an unproduced version of The Lord of the Rings, and went on to help launch the film and acting careers of Liam Neeson, Patrick Stewart, Gabriel Byrne and Ciarán Hinds.
‘Boorman reveals a wonderfully individual gift for embodying the mystical and the magical.’
David Robinson, 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!
