Tokyo StoryU

Yasujirō Ozu | Japan | 1953 | 2h 16m | Japanese/English subs | Setsuko Hara, Chishû Ryû, Chieko Higashiyama, Sô Yamamura, Kyôko Kagawa

An ageing couple journey to bustling postwar Tokyo to visit their two adult children. Too busy to entertain their parents, they send them off to a health spa where it falls to Noriko, the widow of the couple’s younger son, to keep her in-laws company. The final part of Ozu’s loosely connected “Noriko Trilogy” is a quietly tragic tale of the gulf between generations and is often hailed as one of the greatest films ever made.

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!
