Paprika15

Satoshi Kon | Japan | 2006 | 1h 27m | Japanese/English subs | Megumi Hayashibara, Tôru Furuya, Kôichi Yamadera, Akio Ôtsuka, Daisuke Sakaguchi

A research psychologist begins using revolutionary new technology to enter the dreams of her psychiatric patients in order to help them. But when the prototype is stolen, all hell breaks loose and only a young female therapist can stop it: Paprika. A hallucinatory sci-fi thriller packed with kaleidoscopic visuals and mind-bending plot lines which went on to influence Christopher Nolan’s box office hit Inception.

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!
