The Mummy (1932)PG

Directed by Karl Freund | USA | 1932 | 1h 13m | Starring Boris Karloff, Zita Johann, David Manners, Arthur Byron, Bramwell Fletcher

A team of British archaeologists discover the mummified remains of the ancient Egyptian prince Imhotep, along with the legendary scroll of Thoth. When one of the archaeologists recites the scroll aloud, Imhotep returns to life and escapes into the night. Years later, Imhotep disguises himself as wealthy man and searches Egypt for his lost love, who he believes has been reincarnated. Boris Karloff stars in this Universal monster classic which terrified audiences in 1932 and became an influential horror film due to its eerie mood and atmosphere.

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!
