My Beautiful Laundrette15
An ambitious British-Pakistani man decides to open an upscale laundromat in an attempt to make his family proud. During a street fight, he bumps into a childhood friend (a former skinhead) who offers to help, sparking a whirlwind romance between the two. Steven Frears’ culture-clash rom-com is also a groundbreaking and subversive work of social realism addressing racism, homophobia, and the economic divide in Thatcher’s England.
‘This seminal 1980s movie launched a plethora of now distinguished careers, including those of director Stephen Frears and Daniel Day-Lewis.’

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!
