Licorice Pizza15

Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson | USA | 2021 | 2h 14m | Starring Alana Haim, Cooper Hoffman, Bradley Cooper, Sean Penn

In 1970s California, a fiery friendship sparks up between an ambitious high-schooler and a twenty-something photographer’s assistant. Running around the San Fernando Valley, the pair attempt to hustle their way to becoming successful entrepreneurs. A funny and freewheeling tale of arrested development and unlikely love from award-winning director Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood, Phantom Thread). 


‘If you could produce and bottle enjoyment as a chemical compound, it would taste a lot like Licorice Pizza…Paul Thomas Anderson’s most purely pleasurable film to date.’
David Jenkins, Little White Lies

‘Paul Thomas Anderson’s funniest and most relaxed film yet’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

Plan your visit

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!
