How To Have Sex15

Directed by Molly Manning Walker | UK | 2023 | 1h 31m | Starring Mia McKenna-Bruce, Shaun Thomas, Lara Peake, Samuel Bottomley, Enva Lewis

After finishing their exams, three British teenagers go to Crete on a rites-of-passage holiday full of boozing, clubbing and hooking up. As they dance their way across the sun-drenched streets of Malia, they find themselves navigating the complexities of sex, consent, and self-discovery. In her vibrant debut feature, Molly Manning Walker captures the buzz and nostalgia, as well as the horrors, of a distinctly British youth culture. Winner of the Un Certain Regard Award for best first feature at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.

‘How To Have Sex is a wild and fun ride, whose sober moments are as important as they are uncomfortable.’
★★★★

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!
