The Shop Around the CornerPG
In a Budapest gift shop in the run-up to Christmas, two colleagues who cannot stand each other are both searching for romance. They soon find themselves falling in love with their own anonymous pen-pals, without realising they are in fact in correspondence with each other. Deftly directed by Ernst Lubitsch from a smart script, this is a romantic comedy in the finest sense of the term and perfect seasonal fare.
‘Close to perfection–one of the most beautifully acted and paced romantic comedies ever made in this country.’
Pauline Kael, The New Yorker
‘Twice remade, Lubitsch’s 1940 original, set in Budapest, is the real thing. One of the greatest romantic comedies’
Philip French, 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!
