During the bright Nordic summer, four children become close friends and discover that they have mysterious hidden powers. While exploring their newfound abilities in the nearby forests and playgrounds, their innocent play soon takes a dark turn. The pains of growing up is given a disturbing and atmospheric perspective in this spine-chilling Norwegian horror.
‘The Innocents is a nightmare unfolding in cold, clear daylight.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘Harnesses the terrifying malice of bored kids and blurs the line between social drama and out-and-out horror.’
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!
