SuzumePG

Directed by Makoto Shinkai | Japan | 2022 | 2h 2m | Japanese w/ English subtitles | Voiced by Nanoka Hara, Hokuto Matsumura, Eri Fukatsu, Kôshirô Matsumoto, Shôta Sometani

As the skies turn red and the earth trembles, Japan stands at the brink of disaster. Seventeen-year-old Suzume sets out on a journey across the island to close the mysterious portals causing chaos and devastation. Japanese filmmaker Makoto Shinkai (Your Name, Weathering With You) is back with another astonishingly emotional animated adventure about an ordinary young girl with an extraordinary destiny.

Reviews

‘Visually striking and emotionally poignant, Suzume manages to combine hilarity and heartache, in its heightened, therapeutic, if slightly unwieldy, narrative.’
★★★★
Jake Cunningham, Empire Magazine

‘Suzume is perhaps Shinkai’s most spookily beautiful work to date, while remaining treasurably odd.’
★★★★
Tim Robey, The Telegraph

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!
