Still WalkingU

Twelve years after their beloved eldest son drowned while saving a stranger’s life, a husband and wife welcome their surviving children home for a family reunion. Featuring heartrending performances and a quiet naturalism, this domestic drama focuses on the simple gestures and daily routines that evoke a family coming together to remember. Created as a tribute to his late mother, Hirokazu Kore-eda casts a delicate and enchanting spell with this deeply personal work.

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!
