Interview With The Vampire18
Born a 18th-century lord, a 200 year-old vampire relates his epic life story of love, betrayal, and loneliness to an eager American journalist. Starring Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, and a brilliant performance from a young Kirsten Dunst, Neil Jordan’s atmospheric adaptation of the Anne Rice’s mould-breaking novel serves up romance and camp gothic thrills aplenty.
This screening will feature an introductory talk from Dr Samantha George and Dr Bill Hughes from the Open Graves, Open Minds Project (University of Hertfordshire) and followed by an audience Q&A.
This screening is part of Blood & Celluloid: Vampire Film Festival 2022. For more info and to get your festival pass for all five films, click on the “Vampire Film Festival” button below.
‘Bold, gruesome and melancholic, this Gothic horrorfest offers us much to sink our teeth into: Cruise – who effectively disappears from the screen for half the film’s duration – is terrific, Dunst eerily compelling, Banderas hypnotic.’
Adam Smith, Empire Magazine
‘His sumptuous film is as strange and mesmerizing as it is imaginatively ghastly. It’s a sophisticated, spookily intense rendering of Ms. Rice’s story.’
Elvis Mitchell, The New York 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!
