The Last Picture Show15

Directed by Peter Bogdanovich | USA | 1971 | 2h 6m | Starring Timothy Bottoms, Cybill Shepherd, Jeff Bridges, Ben Johnson, Ellen Burstyn

A melancholic ode to America in the 1950s in which a group of high schoolers come of age in a culturally isolated and economically crumbling town in Texas. We pay tribute to the late, great film-maker and historian Peter Bogdanovich with his evocative elegy to cinema that became an important touchstone of American film during the 1970s.

Reviews

‘Peter Bogdanovich’s 1971 ode to a Texan small town is still a masterpiece whichever way you look at it.’
★★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘Peter Bogdanovich’s eerie homage to olden times and movies, one of the key Hollywood films of the early 1970s, looks ever more crisply stunning and remote.’
★★★★★
Tim Robey, The Telegraph

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!
