The Electrical Life of Louis Wain12A
The extraordinary true story of Victorian-era painter Louis Wain, whose psychedelic anthropomorphised depiction of cats made him a renowned British artist. Benedict Cumberbatch gives an exquisite lead performance in his imaginative biopic focussing on Wain’s relationship with his wife, his family, and – of course – his cats.
‘An affable biopic about a great but troubled man, with plenty of artistic spirit of its own.’
Hanna Flint, Time Out
‘Unexpectedly charming and sweet despite the inevitable dark routes taken, the film is an affecting watch, and Olivia Colman’s cheeky narration is an added treat’
Alan Jones, 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!
