Directed by Reggie Yates | UK | 2021 | 1h 20m | Starring Elliot Edusah, Jordan Peters, Reda Elazouar

In London, 1999, three pirate radio DJs trying to break into the UK garage scene are determined to see in the new millennium in style. The trio pile into their tiny Peugeot car and drive across London to try and get tickets for the best new year’s eve party of their lives. Reggie Yates’s directorial debut is a joyful coming-of-age comedy brimming with vibrant performances and an evocative 90s soundtrack.


‘The closest things to a time machine with energy that explodes off the screen. A great slice of underrepresented British life that deserves to be seen big.’
Cheyenne Bunsie, Little White Lies

‘Fresh and funny at its best, Pirates bodes wells for Yates’s future career behind the camera’
Alex Ramon, BFI Sight and Sound Magazine

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!
