In the Mood for LovePG
In 1960s Hong Kong, Chow Mo-wan and Su Li-zhen move into neighbouring apartments on the same day. Their encounters are formal and polite until a discovery about their spouses creates an intimate bond between them. With its aching soundtrack and exquisite cinematography, this ravishing depiction of desire and longing is regularly cited as one of the greatest films of the 21st-century.
‘Probably the most breathtakingly gorgeous film of 2000, dizzy with a nose-against-the-glass romantic spirit that has been missing from the cinema forever.’
A.O. Scott, The New York Times
‘It’s not what’s present in the image that makes us desire to see this film again and again, but rather, the absence that haunts it.’
Amy Taubin, BFI Sight and Sound Magazine

Plan your visit
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!
