The Eight Mountains12A
Two young Italian boys spend their childhoods together in a secluded alpine village roaming the surrounding peaks and valleys. But as decades pass they naturally begin to grow apart, only for their paths to ultimately lead them back to where they first met. A profound and beautifully shot epic of friendship and self-discovery based on the best-selling novel by Paolo Cognetti. Jury Prize winner at Cannes Film Festival 2022.
‘This film has mystery and passion, it climbs mountainous heights and rewards you with the opposite of vertigo: a sort of exaltation’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘Combines the earthy, rooted grit of Jack London with the vivid emotional landscapes of Elena Ferrante.’
Wendy Ide, The Observer

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!
