Napoleon15

Starring Ridley Scott | UK/USA | 2023 | 2h 37m | Starring Joaquin Phoenix, Vanessa Kirby, Tahar Rahim, Rupert Everett, Mark Bonnar

Born into Corsican nobility, Napoleon Bonaparte ascended through the ranks of the French army, emerging as one of Europe’s most accomplished military commanders and ultimately securing the title of Emperor of France. From the battles which catapulted him to fame to his turbulent marriage to Josephine, Ridley Scott’s sweeping historical epic offers a glimpse into the psyche of one of the most controversial figures in European history.

Reviews

‘Joaquin Phoenix makes a magnificent emperor in thrilling biopic. Ridley Scott dispenses with the symbolic weight attached to previous biopics in favour of a spectacle with a great star at its centre.’
★★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘As entertainment Napoleon delivers without glorifying his military record or painting the man as a hero. It’s a story about power, obsession and exploitation — which arguably is the story of history itself’
★★★★
Hannah Strong, Little White Lies

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!
