The Draughtsman’s Contract15
A brash young artist in hired by the wife of wealthy landowner to make a series of landscape illustrations of their country estate. But when the murdered body of the husband is discovered, mysterious clues found in the drawings point to the identity of the killer. With Michael Nyman’s score and visuals influenced by Caravaggio, Vermeer and Rembrandt, Peter Greenaway’s witty, stylised, and erotic country house murder-mystery is a remarkable work of cinematic art.
‘As an introduction to a unique personal vision, director Peter Greenaway’s first commercially released feature film is a calling card of dazzling virtuosity.’
Tom Hutchinson, Radio 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!
