Newly married couple Justine and Michael throw a sumptuous party on the day of their wedding. Despite the best effort of Justine’s sister Claire, the reception becomes a fiasco, with family tensions mounting and relationships fraying. Meanwhile, astrologists locate a new planet in the solar system, one which appears to be on a collision course with Earth. Lars Von Trier’s profound and unforgettable vision of depression and destruction features an award-winning lead performance by Kirsten Dunst (Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival).
‘The film’s first images, premonitions of doom made lyrical, incise themselves on your brain.’
Nigel Andrews, The FT
‘Dunst is exceptional, so utterly convincing in the lead role – trouble, serene, a fierce savant – that it feels like a career breakthrough.’
Sukhdev Sandhu, 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!
