Reviews

‘Tender, moving and exciting for kids (and their secretly tearful parents).’
★★★★
Kate Muir, The Times

‘The Iron Giant captures and crystallizes its source material’s anxious, humane spirit. It might be the most empathetic and exhilarating mainstream American animated feature ever made.’
Adam Nayman, The Ringer

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!
