In post-Soviet Russia, a comic book artist comes down with the flu and is aided on a journey through the city by his friend, drifting in and out of fantasy and reality. A deadpan, hallucinatory romp through Russian society written by film and theatre director Kirill Serebrennikov while he was placed under house arrest in Moscow.
‘This is some flu: it plunges us into a deeply strange and unsettling version of reality.’
Dave Calhoun, Time Out
‘At once palpably visionary and abrasively obscure, an intensely expressive work which is also deeply embedded in a Russian context.’
Mark Asch, Little White Lies

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!
