Rear WindowPG

Directed by Alfred Hitchcock | USA | 1954 | 1h 54m | Starring James Stewart, Grace Kelly, Wendell Corey, Thelma Ritter

Confined to his apartment, a newspaper photographer with a broken leg passes the time by watching the lives of his neighbours through the window. When he begins to suspect that a man across the courtyard may have murdered his wife, he enlists the help of his girlfriend to investigate the possible crime. A masterpiece of storytelling and suspense starring a luminous performance by Grace Kelley and James Stewart as the helpless voyeur.

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!
