The Double Life of Veronique15
Two young women, both called Veronique, seem to have a single existence, albeit in different countries – one in France the other in Poland. Though unknown to each other, they share an enigmatic and emotional bond as well as a rare heart disease. Aided by Slawomir Idziak’s shimmering cinematography and Zbigniew Preisner’s haunting score, Kieślowski creates one of cinema’s most purely metaphysical works – an enigmatic tale of double identity.
‘The elusiveness of the film is precisely the point: it is as beautiful and mysterious as a poem and its formal elegance and conviction are unarguable.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘Compelling, challenging and irresistibly beautiful, this delicate metaphysical masterpiece only emphasises how much cinema lost through Krzysztof Kieslowski’s tragically early death.’
David Parkinson, 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!
