The Wicker Man15
A conservative Christian policeman is sent to the small Scottish island of Summerisle to investigate a case involving a missing young girl. The closer he gets to solving the mystery, the more intertwined he becomes in the locals’ strange Pagan rituals. A bleakly comic folk-horror featuring one of the most shocking and unforgettable crescendos in 1970s British cinema.
‘It remains a how-to model for making something that fancies itself a slow-burn thriller—until it isn’t slow-burning whatsoever.’
David Fear, Time Out
‘There is genuine fear in its nightmarish tableaux…And that final sequence, with the eponymous Wicker Man, is inspired.’
Peter Bradshaw, 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!
