Lunana: A Yak in the ClassroomPG
A young teacher in modern day Bhutan is reassigned to a school in the extremely remote village of Lunana. After an arduous eight-day trek, he finds himself with no electricity, no textbooks or even a blackboard to teach with. Shot in staggeringly beautiful locations, Bhutan’s first-ever Oscar nominee for Best International Feature balances gentle humour with life-affirming drama in an uplifting tale about finding contentment in unexpected places.
‘The film is so pure of spirit and so open-hearted, you want to breathe it in, to fill your lungs with it.’
Wendy Ide, The Observer
‘The gorgeous views of the Himalayan mountains only add to the appeal of a film that, while hitting familiar plot beats, is an irresistible delight from start to finish.’
David Parkinson, Radio 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!
