Residents of a small Hungarian village grapple with the aftermath of Communism’s collapse. With the local factory closed, villagers await a promised cash payout following the shutdown. Amidst this, a villager previously believed to be dead returns and convinces the locals to form a commune. Voted one of the 100 greatest films of all time in the recent BFI Sight & Sound poll, Béla Tarr’s legendary seven-and-a-half-hour masterpiece is a mesmerising exploration of domestic and social decay in post-Communist Europe.

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!
