A disheveled man wanders out of the desert not knowing who he is. When his brother finds him, he helps him remember the life he led before he disappeared four years ago. Director Wim Wenders and Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright Sam Shepard create an exquisite exploration on the myth of the American family set to Ry Cooder’s haunting Americana score. Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 1984 Cannes Film Festival.
‘I’ve seldom seen such a potent combination of superior talents. Watch the first hour of the movie, and what you will see is an unparalleled summation of America as seen by wondering European eyes.’
Derek Malcolm, 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!
