It Happened One NightU
On the run from her overbearing father, a pampered socialite links up with a cynical newspaper reporter who offers to help her evade her pursuers. But during their travels, the reporter finds himself falling for the feisty young heiress. One of Hollywood’s most beloved romantic comedies, Frank Capra’s 1934 classic was the first film to sweep all five major Oscar categories (Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Director, and Best Screenplay).
A one-off free screening to celebrate the launch of our ‘Lights, Community, Action!’ community-ownership campaign. Booking essential.
‘As buoyant and elegant as bubbles in a glass of champagne, Frank Capra’s sublime 1934 comedy survives triumphantly because of its wit, charm, and romantic idealism.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘It’s every romantic comedy you’ve ever seen. They can all be traced back here, virtually without exception, for eight straight decades now.’
Mike D’Angelo, The AV Club

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!
