Reviews

‘Bare of sentimentalism, and oozing raw authenticity from every dirty pore…Powerful, compelling viewing.’
★★★★
Trevor Lewis, Empire Magazine

‘Ramsay has found a confident style; she’s not just a promising first-time director, but a fully-fledged visionary from the start.’
Jonathan Romney, The Guardian

Plan your visit

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!
