The Truman ShowPG

Directed by Peter Weir | USA | 1998 | 1h 43m | Starring Jim Carrey, Laura Linney, Ed Harris, Noah Emmerich Natascha McElhone

An insurance salesman goes about his day-to-day existence oblivious to the fact that his entire life is a reality TV show, broadcast to the world without his knowledge. As he grapples with the surreal nature of his existence, he begins a quest for freedom and to discover the truth. Peter Weir’s BAFTA-winning drama is a funny and thought-provoking examination of technological intrusion and media manipulation in an age before reality TV was the norm.

Reviews

‘This ingenious satirical comedy drama about media omnipotence is both dazzling and sophisticated from audacious start to poignant finale.’

Alan Jones, The Radio Times

‘A movie with wit as well as ideas, it’s an all out attack on the media’s need to control, package and present real life.’
★★★★★
Adam Smith, Empire Magazine

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!
