The Tragedy of Macbeth15

Directed by Joel Coen | USA | 2021 | 1h 45m | Starring Denzel Washington, Frances McDormand, Brendan Gleeson, Corey Hawkins

One half of the Coen Brothers, Joel Coen adapts Shakespeare’s murderous tale of ambition, madness, and wrathful deceit. Shrouded in mist and masterful monochrome cinematography, Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand excel in the roles of a power-hungry couple with their eyes on the Scottish throne.

Reviews

‘This is a black-and-white world of violence and pain that scorches the retina.’
★★★★★
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘It’s stage-bound in all the right ways, reminiscent of a much earlier cinema…It’s short, sharp and savage.’
★★★★★
Dave Calhoun, Time Out

Plan your visit

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!
