Peter Von Kant15
A famous filmmaker spends his days drunk and writing his next masterpiece – with a little help from his enigmatic assistant. After a chance meeting, he falls in love with a handsome aspiring actor and invites him into his home where a troubled relationship begins to manifest. François Ozon reworks Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s 1972’s hyper-stylised classic The Bitter Tears of Petra von Kant, offering a gender-swapped version that also serves as an indirect portrait of the troubled maestro himself.
‘The casting of the meaty, magnetic Ménochet… is smart: his resemblance to Fassbinder adds a self-referential layer to the drama.’
Wendy Ide, The Observer

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!
