On Saturday 22nd April we’re celebrating (Middle) Earth Day with back-to-back screenings of all three extended editions from Peter Jackson’s monumental Lord of the Rings Trilogy.

Join Frodo Baggins and the Fellowship as they embark on their epic quest to destroy the One Ring, and ensure the destruction of its maker – the Dark Lord Sauron. With its incredible cast of characters, unmatched storytelling, epic battles, and stunning scenery, Peter Jackson’s trilogy, based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s legendary novel, is one of the great cinematic achievements of the 21st century.

All-day tickets are now on sale. Tickets cost £25 and allow entry and re-entry to the cinema throughout the entire day. We have included a Pay Less (£20) option for those whose budget can’t currently stretch to full price ticketing, and a Pay More (£30) option for those who can afford to pay a little more. Seating will be unallocated, so please sit wherever you like.

The bar will be open for 30mins before each film start time, during intervals, and both scheduled breaks. But please feel free to use this time to stretch your legs and get some air outside the cinema should you feel the need. It’s a long day, so please do bring additional cushions/pillows as well as a supply of snacks if you wish (tip: plenty of water and fresh fruit is a great way of keeping energy levels high).


‘The painstaking attention to detail, New Zealand scenery so breathtaking you could feel the wind on your face, the pitch-perfect casting and the huge-scale effects. In the end, however, it all comes down to friendship, and fellowship, and a struggle against the odds. It’s the fact that Peter Jackson was able to keep his eye on the emotion even while the spectacle swirled around him that makes this such a stunner.’
Empire Magazine, The Greatest Greatest Movie Trilogy

Plan your visit

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!
