Poor Things18

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos | USA | 2023 | 2h 22m | Starring Emma Stone, Mark Ruffalo, Willem Dafoe, Ramy Youssef, Kathryn Hunter

After being bought back to life by an unconventional scientist, a young woman finds herself in a fantastical world she’s eager to explore. Yearning for experiences and knowledge, she embarks on a whirlwind adventure across continents with a charismatic and adventurous lawyer. Yorgos Lanthimos, the Oscar-winning director of The Favourite, reunites with Emma Stone in this wildly imaginative, provocative, and humorous take on the classic Frankenstein story.

Winner of the Golden Lion award (Best Film) at the 2023 Venice Film Festival. Nominated for 11 Oscars and 11 BAFTA Awards, including Best Film.

Reviews

‘Poor Things is the best film of Lanthimos’ career and already feels like an instant classic, mordantly funny, whimsical and wacky, unprecious and unpretentious, filled with so much to adore that to try and parse it all here feels like a pitiful response to the film’s ambitions.’
★★★★★
Ryan Lattanzio, IndieWire

‘Everything in it – every frame, every image, every joke, every performance – gets a gasp of excitement.’
★★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, 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!
