The LadykillersPG

Directed by Alexander Mackendric | UK | 1955 | 1h 27m | Starring Alec Guinness, Peter Sellers, Katie Johnson, Cecil Parker, Herbert Lom, Danny Green

Five oddball criminals planning a bank robbery move into a little old lady’s boardinghouse under the pretext that they are classical musicians. For the heist to be a success, they need to keep their plan from the prying eyes of their temporary host – a task easier said than done. The final (and finest) of the Ealing Studios comedies is still as subversive and hilarious as it was when it was released nearly 70 years ago.

Reviews

‘A comic crime caper that still kills. Sixty-five years later the classic from Ealing Studios is still subversive, hilarious and distinctly English’
★★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘One of the great Ealing comedies of the 1950s.’
★★★★★
Katy Muir, The 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!
