Reviews

‘Dares to laugh in the face of the unthinkable. And because Benigni can be heart-rending without a trace of the maudlin, it works.’
★★★★
Janet Maslin, The New York Times

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!
