Reviews

‘There’s no kindness, in other words, in Kinds of Kindness. But that’s fine too, and probably all part of the brilliant, bravura joke.’
★★★★
Kevin Maher, The Times

‘A huge part of the fun is getting caught in the mesh of mind games the film sets for its audience… But it’s also a treat just to watch the well-picked ensemble show off their range in the constantly rotating supporting roles.’
★★★★
Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

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!
