My Name is Alfred Hitchcock15
2022 marked the hundred-year anniversary of Alfred Hitchcock’s first feature. But how does his vast body of work and legacy hold up today? Documentarian Mark Cousins (The Story of Film) tackles this question and looks at the auteur with a new and radical approach: with Hitchcock himself “narrating” from beyond the grave. Structured around six central themes recurrent in Hitchcock’s filmography, this captivating documentary presents a meticulous and playful examination of the oeuvre of one of cinema’s most influential figures.
‘As ever, there is real evangelism in Cousins’s work and in My Name Is Alfred Hitchcock there is so much to learn and enjoy. You come away from it with your senses fine-tuned.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘Combining psychoanalysis and textual analysis in such an intimate manner brings us closer than ever to Hitch himself, and the on-screen evidence confirms how his personal obsessions played out on film.’
Matt Glassy, Radio 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!
