Reviews

‘Drawing on a true story, Jung offers no easy solutions but presents a humane and affecting study of systemic failings, where quotas are prioritised over people.’
★★★★
Kevin Harley, The Radio Times

‘A chilling portrait of a generation frustrated and betrayed, facing a future they don’t quite want to claim.’
Rebecca Liu, The Guardian

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!
