Scrapper12A

Directed by Charlotte Regan | UK | 2023 | 1h 24m | Starring Lola Campbell, Harris Dickinson, Alin Uzun, Cary Crankson, Carys Bowkett

In a working class suburb of London, a resilient 12-year-old has learned to fend for herself in the wake of her mother’s passing. In a modest flat, she earns her keep by stealing bicycles and with a little help from her neighbours. However, her world takes an unexpected turn when her long-lost father turns up out of the blue expecting to be part of her life again. Best known for her award-winning shorts and music videos, Charlotte Regan’s feature debut is a vibrant and joyful coming-of-age drama which won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival.

Reviews

‘Scrapper is a solar system of a film, with Campbell’s playful and defiant Georgie shining bright at its centre. You’ll not find many characters this year quite as likeable.’
★★★★
Clarisse Loughery, The Independent

‘A refreshing change of page from the pervasive grimness with which British culture usually depicts working class stories.’
★★★★
Hannah Strong, Little White Lies

Plan your visit

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!
