The Virgin Suicides15
Trapped in a stifling suburban existence, the young students and adolescents of Grosse Pointe, Michigan, are always searching for a way to escape. The only bright spot for the town’s teenage boys are the enigmatic Lisbon sisters. However, the lives of the sisters and the neighbourhood around them soon becomes entwined with tragedy. In her dreamlike debut, Sofia Coppola creates a poignant reflection on the fragility of youth and the scars left by unspoken secrets.
‘[Coppola] has the courage to play it in a minor key. She doesn’t hammer home ideas and interpretations. She is content with the air of mystery and loss that hangs in the air like bitter poignancy.’
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
‘An always impressive tale of teenage insecurity, deprivation, angst, and lust.’
Michael Thomson, BBC

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!
