Smoking Causes Coughing15
In the aftermath of a ferocious showdown with a colossal malevolent turtle, a team of five superheroes known as the Tobacco Force are compelled to take mandatory leave. However, the retreat takes an unexpected turn when a sinister figure named Lézardin, the Emperor of Evil, sets his sights on obliterating planet Earth. French filmmaker Quentin Dupieux (Deerskin, Rubber) brings his signature absurdist comedy to this brilliantly offbeat satire of the superhero genre.
‘Unpredictable, digressive, looping and parenthetical in structure, Smoking Causes Coughing is one of the most formally daring and unexpected films of the year.’
Wendy Ide, The Observer
‘Tongues are firmly in cheeks throughout, and Adèle Exarchopoulos steals the movie as a cheery smartphone addict who keeps vlogging into the digital abyss, even as she’s being pursued by a murderer.’
Kevin Maher, The Times

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!
