The ApartmentPG

Directed by Billy Wilder | USA | 1960 | 2h 5m | Starring Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine, Fred MacMurray, Ray Walston, Joan Shawlee

A Manhattan clerk hopes to climb the corporate ladder by lending his apartment to executives to carry out their extramarital affairs. However, complications arise when he falls in love with the elevator girl who happens to be having an affair with his boss. Billy Wilder expertly balances charm and wit with devastating sadness in this ingeniously funny rom-com.

Reviews

‘Wilder and Diamond’s brilliantly witty screenplay has a serious undertow as it savages corporate ethics and conjugal infidelity.’
★★★★★
George Perry, BBC

‘This comedy tells truths about American business and sexual mores as uncomfortable now as they were in 1960.’
★★★★★
Kim Newman, Empire Magazine

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!
