The Phantom of the Open12A
The true story of crane operator Maurice Flitcroft who achieved his goal of participating in the British Open Golf Championship despite never having played the sport before. A hilarious and heart-warming tale of how the ‘world’s worst golfer’ became a folk hero, written by British comic Simon Farnaby (Paddington 2) and starring Academy Award winning actor Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies).
‘Despite the inherent silliness, the actors play it straight. There’s an earnestness to Rylance’s performance, which encourages us to find inspiration in the underdog.’
Simran Hans, The Observer
‘A rousing salute to a very English strain of nincompoopery – and a wise and witty reminder that that the pleasure of doing something spectacularly badly can outstrip the satisfaction of a job well done.’
Robbie Collins, The Telegraph

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!
