Directed by Justin Kurzel | Australia | 2021 | 1h 52m | Starring Caleb Landry Jones, Judy Davis, Anthony LaPaglia, Essie Davis

In suburban Australia, a frustrated young man lives an unfulfilling life alone with his parents. When an unexpected friendship with a reclusive heiress comes to an end, he becomes increasingly angry with the world and begins a slow descent into violence. A disturbing psychological portrait of a mass murderer, based on the true events leading up to the Port Arthur massacre of 1996.


‘Another extraordinary achievement from Kurzel, who has a penchant for evoking gut-sinking emotional atmosphere.’
Luke Buckmaster, The Guardian

‘Nitram is a stark, difficult, but deeply reflective film that asks sincerely why we describe these crimes as incomprehensible at the very same time as we watch the same patterns unfold, again and again.’
Clarisse Loughery, The Independent

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!
