Rumble Fish18

Directed by Francis Ford Coppola | USA | 1983 | 1h 34m | Starring Matt Dillon, Mickey Rourke, Diane Lane, Dennis Hopper, Nicolas Cage

In a rundown industrial American town, a restless teenager grapples with rival gangs and his estranged father, all while desperately attempting to live up to the reputation of his legendary older brother. Featuring magnetic lead performances by Matt Dillon and Mickey Rourke, Francis Ford Coppola’s adaptation of S.E. Hinton’s 1975 novel is a stunning black-and-white exploration of existential teenage angst.

Reviews

‘An iconic outsider of 1980s teen cinema, Rumble Fish remains an intriguing anomaly on Coppola’s chequered CV.’
★★★★
Matt Glasby, Film4

‘A myth-infused coming-of-age story that’s directed with a grandly imaginative visual repertoire to match.’
Richard Brody, New Yorker

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!
