‘In the truest sense of the word, this is a spectacle: cinema as theatre, on a scale comparable to the likes of Gladiator or Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.’
Hannah Strong, Little White Lies

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!
