Folk Weekend Oxford presents: Night of the DemonPG

Directed by Jacques Tourneur | UK | 1957 | 1h 31m | Starring Dana Andrews, Peggy Cummins, Niall MacGinnis, Maurice Denham

An American professor arrives in London for a parapsychology conference, only to find himself investigating the mysterious death of a colleague. A beguiling tale of the power of the occult which went on to achieve cult status as an influential release of the British folk horror movement of the 1960-70s.

A one-off screening presented with live music from The Hex Collective, a pre-festival event part of Folk Weekend Oxford.

Reviews

‘A film that survives even its most unsubtle special effects to earn its place as not only one of the great films of British vintage cinema but also a classic supernatural thriller.’

Plan your visit

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!
