In the mid-19th century, Ada is sent to New Zealand along with her young daughter and prized piano for an arranged marriage to a wealthy landowner. The early days of their marriage is filled with unease, but Ada soon finds herself drawn to a rugged frontiersman living nearby. Powered by Holly Hunter’s lead performance, this sublimely stirring tale of desire and creativity led to Jane Campion becoming the first woman to win a Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival.

‘Some 25 years since its initial release, The Piano remains a remarkable and poignant meditation on female power disguised as a love story for the ages.’
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!
