La Haine15

Directed by Mathieu Kassovitz | France | 1995 | 1h 38m | French w/ English subtitles | Starring Vincent Cassel, Hubert Koundé, Saïd Taghmaoui, Abdel Ahmed Ghili

After a chaotic night of riots and police brutality in the Parisian suburbs, three young men wander the abandoned streets and plot revenge on those responsible for hospitalising a friend. With its energetic performances and stylish cinematography, Mathieu Kassovitz’s explosive look at racial and cultural volatility in Paris became an instant classic of contemporary French cinema.

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!
