Composer of West Side Story, winner of countless accolades, and the first American conductor to receive international acclaim, Leonard Bernstein was a titan of the world of classical music. Spanning the decades following the end of the Second World War, this romantic biopic unfolds the tapestry of Bernstein’s life, focusing on his three-decade-long marriage to Chilean-American actor Felicia Montealegre. Led by a pair of stirringly passionate performances, director and star Bradley Cooper pays tribute to one of the preeminent figures in 20th-century American culture.
‘An astonishingly beautiful film, by turns heartbreaking, tragic and tender, one that is fully constructed around two incessantly committed career-high performances.’
Kevin Maher, The Times
‘When we critics complain that studio pictures don’t take risks any more, Maestro is exactly the sort of film we wish they’d make instead. Not everything in it lands cleanly, but even its misses excite, and its direct hits are knockouts.’
Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

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!
