Reviews

‘Terrific, prickly sibling drama starring two of Germany’s finest actors’
★★★★ Wendy Ide, The Observer

‘Hoss opts for the more restrained, more refined choice. The result is miles more powerful, and far more real than other films of its ilk.’
★★★★ Kate Erbland, IndieWire

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!
