Leonor Will Never Die15
Retired filmmaker Leonor is about to start work on a new script when she is knocked unconscious by a falling television. Waking up in a dreamworld much like the macho movies she used to direct, Leonor is compelled to become the hero of her own unfinished screenplay. A surreal comedy is all at once a tribute to retro Filipino action movies, a charming portrait of a compulsive artist, and a reminder of the limitless possibilities of cinema. Winner of the Special Jury Prize at Sundance.
‘In a film steeped in loss and grief, Leonor Will Never Die, as the title implies, is ultimately a beautiful, life-affirming celebration of the power of film and art to heal. Yes, even ‘80s action films.’

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!
