Reviews

‘Memoria is a beautiful and mysterious movie…an out-of-body experience that you have to build up to, step by step.’
★★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘Memoria is more meditation than movie, a transfixing deep-dive into the profound challenges of relating to people and places from the outside in.’
★★★★★
Eric Kohn, IndieWire

Plan your visit

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!
