The Damned Don’t Cry18
In a whirlwind of scandal, Fatima-Zahra and her teenage son Selim embark on a relentless journey, forever on the run from the shadows of their past. Their path leads them to the city of Tangier, where opportunities beckon, promising the long-awaited legitimacy they both yearn for. Within the atmospheric embrace of this transgressive melodrama, director Fyzal Boulifa weaves a mesmerizing tale of daring to defy societal norms and the treacherous pitfalls that lie in wait.
‘The Damned Don’t Cry is excellent, asking tough questions about society and morality without easy answers or neat conclusions.’
Adam Solomons, IndieWire
‘It is humane, richly involving and powerfully acted by two headliners making their screen debut.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

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!
