Matilda Wormwood is an exceptionally bright six-year-old girl with a passion for reading and learning. But when Matilda discovers that she possesses telekinetic powers, she uses them to take on the wicked headmistress Miss Trunchbull as well as her neglectful and greedy parents. Based on Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s novel, this enchanting tale reminds us all that sometimes, the biggest heroes come in the smallest packages.

Part of our Summer Holiday Family Classics season, all tickets cost £6.50 on Sunday and £5 on Wednesday.

Reviews

‘Matilda doesn’t condescend to children, it doesn’t sentimentalize, and as a result it feels heartfelt and sincere. It’s funny, too.’
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-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!
