Winner of the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival and nominated for Best Foreign Language Film at the 2018 Oscars, this heartbreaking drama follows a small band of marginalised misfits struggling to make ends meet on the outskirts of Tokyo. Moving at its own deliberate pace and with an emphasis on delicate details, Hirokazu Kore-eda shines a spotlight on Tokyo’s struggling classes with his usual insight, compassion, and humour.

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!
