The Long Day ClosesPG
In 1950s Kensington, a working-class district of Liverpool, a young boy deals with the loneliness of his emerging adolescence by seeking solace at his local ‘picture-house’. Suffused with both dreamlike enchantment and melancholy nostalgia, Terence Davies autobiographical coming-of-age drama paints an evocative portrait of the director as a young man.
‘Terence Davies’ most underrated work: a cinematic hymn to the echoes and sensations of childhood – a paradise gained and lost.’
PJ Nabarro, Little White Lies
‘The Long Day Closes is one of the great movies about memory…uniquely remarkable’
A.A. Dowd, The AV Club

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!
