The Texas Chain Saw Massacre18

Directed by Tobe Hooper | USA | 1974 | 1h 23m | Starring Marilyn Burns, Edwin Neal, Allen Danziger, Paul A. Partain, Gunnar Hansen

When Sally learns of a possible vandalism incident at her grandfather’s grave, she and her brother decide to investigate. Along the way, they make a detour to their family’s old farmhouse, only to stumble upon a group of deranged outcasts residing nearby. Despite being filmed on a shoestring budget, Tobe Hooper’s gritty, intense, and transgressively nihilistic slasher film sparked widespread outrage upon its release, helping to pave the way for a new era of horror cinema in the 1970s. Back on the big-screen for the film’s 50th anniversary, restored in 4K for the very first time.

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!
