Pretty Red Dress15
Londoner Travis returns home from a spell in prison to find that his girlfriend, Candice, is auditioning to star in a musical and his young daughter is struggling at school. Hoping to smooth things over, he buys Candice her dream dress for the audition. However, this act of kindness inadvertently causes more problems as it leads to Travis exploring his most secret, truest self. An intimate and insightful study of Black masculinity and family relationships soundtracked by the hits of Tina Turner.
‘Dionne Edwards puts this family under the microscope to explore themes of identity in this slow-burn drama brimming with humanity, love, and Motown.’
Andrew Murray, The Upcoming
‘An intensely likable film with a trio of great performances.’
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!
