The Discreet Charm Of The Bourgeoisie15
A group of upper-middle-class acquaintances sit down to a dinner that is repeatedly interrupted, delayed, and thwarted by bizarre events both real and imagined. Luis Buñuel’s surrealist satire of the French ruling class, which won Best Foreign Language Film at the 1973 Academy Awards, has been given a glorious 4k restoration for the 50th-anniversary of its release.
‘Stranger and more sensual than ever…An exotic and brilliant hothouse flower of a film.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘Manages to be totally surreal yet totally approachable. Quite amazing.’
David Jenkins, Little White Lies

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!
