Directed by Lola Quivoron | France | 2022 | 1h 46m | French w/ English subtitles | Starring Julie Ledru, Yannis Lafki, Antonia Buresi, Cody Schroeder, Louis Sotton

A hot tempered young woman on the fringes of society finds an escape through her passion for motorcycles and the high-octane world of urban ‘rodeos’ – illicit gatherings where riders show off their skills. After a chance meeting, she’s drawn into a clandestine clique, where she faces a series of escalating demands to earn her place in the community. Lola Quivoron’s feature directorial debut is a rites-of-passage drama that launches itself into the crime genre at full throttle.


‘Rodeo is a heart-pounding, wholly unique ride, punctuated by incredible stunt work from Ledru and the rest of the cast and possessed by a kinetic, high-energy drive.’
Kate Erbland, IndieWire

‘Rodeo is a combustible fusion of crime story, character study and existential mystery, a tale of celebration and lament, and it announces the arrival of a gifted and adventurous filmmaker.’
Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter

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!
