Awarded the Palme d’Or (Best Film) at the 1963 Cannes Film Festival, Luchino Visconti translates Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa’s novel into a truly cinematic masterpiece. Amid the social upheavals of 1860s Sicily, an aristocratic family grudgingly adapts to the sweeping social changes undermining their way of life. Sumptuous costumes, stunning battle sequences, and lavish period set designs all make this a historical epic on the grandest possible scale.

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!
