Small, Slow But Steady12A
A hearing-impaired boxer strives to make her dream of becoming a professional a reality. However, her journey hits a breaking point when her boxing gym faces closure as its president’s health worsens. Director Shô Miyake beautifully captures the essence on 16mm film, showcasing his artistry in crafting a distinctly atypical sports drama, anchored by Yukino Kishii’s nuanced and authentic performance.
‘Kishii is wonderful in her largely silent role, and Sho Miyake’s film underpins its low-key style with a deft sense of rhythm.’
Edward Poter, The Sunday Times
‘As beautifully understated as the title suggests, and it looks gorgeous. A touching sports drama about the here-and-now, rather than victories or defeats.’
Josh Slater-Williams, Little White Lies

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!
