Till12A

Directed by Chinonye Chukwu | USA | 2022 | 2h 10m | Starring Danielle Deadwyler, Jalyn Hall, Frankie Faison, Haley Bennett, Whoopi Goldberg

The true story of Mamie Till Mobley’s relentless pursuit of justice for her 14 year-old son, Emmett Till, who, in 1955, was brutally lynched while visiting his cousins in Mississippi. An honest and emotionally powerful depiction of a tragic event which became a landmark moment in the pursuit of civil rights in mid-20th century America and still lingers to this day.

Reviews

‘Deadwyler shows us the essential truth of being Black in 1950s America: that it was a tightwire, living-on-tenterhooks ordeal. Frighteningly – and this may be Till’s most vital message – it’s a reality that exists even today.’
★★★★
Sahir Avik D’souza, Time Out

‘Till is a fierce portrait of courage and a sombre study of the human cost involved in resisting this kind of barbarity.’ 
★★★★
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!
