Directed by Marley Morrison | UK | 2021 | 1h 43m | Starring Nell Barlow, Ella-Rae Smith, Jo Hartley

Socially awkward teenager AJ is dragged away by her painfully boring family on a caravanning holiday to the Dorset coast. Sure enough, AJ is soon at her wit’s end, that is until she meets sun-loving lifeguard Isla and a holiday romance blossoms between the two. Winner of the Audience Award at the Glasgow Film Festival, Marley Morrison’s light-hearted debut captures the comedy and quirks of the quintessential British family holiday.


‘Sweetheart marks an authentic account of the murky, counterintuitive waters of the queer experience and eros in adolescence’

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!
