The Old Oak15
In the Northeast of England, a landlord struggles to keep his pub open in an ex-mining community that feels abandoned by the system. Meanwhile, tensions escalate as Syrian refugees move into town. Can this last remaining pub bridge the gap between these two communities? Rumoured to be the final work of legendary British filmmaker Ken Loach (Kes, I Daniel Blake), this socially conscious and impassioned drama serves as a call for empathy and community solidarity.
‘The Old Oak champions empathy, unity, unconditional kindness, the exotic idea of communal sharing, the solidarity of ordinary people wherever they come from, a little hope. It’s a magical space in itself.’
Graham Fuller, The Arts Desk
‘I hope that this isn’t Loach’s final film, but if it is, he has concluded with a ringing statement of faith in compassion for the oppressed.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

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!
