A gay cabaret owner and his drag queen partner put up a false straight front so that their son can introduce them to his conservative soon-to-be in-laws. A remake of the 1978 French film La Cage aux Folles, Mike Nichols’ comedy stills stands out as a celebratory touchstone of queer cinema thanks to its charismatic performances and smartly written screenplay by Elaine May.
‘An American remake with plenty of new pizazz.’
Janet Maslin, New York 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!
