After a joyride gone awry, 14-year-old Shabu is compelled to spend the summer raising money to repair his grandmother’s car and rebuilding family bonds. As he pursues this goal, Shabu also follows his true passion: making music. Set in Rotterdam’s vibrant De Peperklip neighbourhood, this uplifting and humorous documentary captures Shabu’s infectious charm, as well as the diverse and tightly-knit community that surrounds him.
‘The overall effect is magical and euphoric, rather as if Jacques Demy had jazzed up La Haine.’

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!
