Having failed in Los Angeles, washed-up porn actor Mikey returns to his hometown in Texas to reunite with his estranged wife. Before long, a young girl from the doughnut shop catches his eye and he hatches a plan to make it back to Hollywood. With a phenomenal central performance by Simon Rex, this audaciously dark comedy from writer-director Sean Baker (The Florida Project) shines a light on the seedy side of the American Dream.
‘An engrossing state-of-the-nation comedy designed to make us feel so dirty that no amount of washing will remove the sweat from our nether parts.’
Kaleem Aftab, Time Out
‘A beguiling and beautiful film about a total toerag, Red Rocket is a unique character study: Mikey Saber will charm your socks off, and you’ll hate him for it.’
Alex Godfrey, Empire 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!
