Kurt Vonnegut: Unstuck in Time15
A compelling documentary recounting the extraordinary life of renowned American author Kurt Vonnegut. The film spans his childhood years in Indianapolis, his time as a Prisoner of War, and the long years as a struggling writer eventually leading to the publication of his celebrated anti-war novel Slaughterhouse-Five. Directed by award-winning screenwriter Robert Weide (Curb Your Enthusiasm) who wrote a fan letter to Vonnegut at the age of 23, and soon found himself with a lifelong friend.
‘Selected readings from novels and short stories are imaginatively visualised, and the final sequences are profoundly moving. Vonnegut would have been proud of the finished film’
David Hughes, Time Out
‘It’s this aspect – the real warmth, the way the camera becomes almost incidental in the encounters between documentarian and subject – which gives this film its satisfying emotional depth.’
Wendy Ide, The Observer

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!
