JFTFP24: Twilight Cinema Blues12A
Kondo, a penniless young filmmaker, returns to his hometown and unexpectedly crosses paths with a film enthusiast living on the streets. This unexpected encounter prompts Kondo to take up part-time work at the local independent cinema. There, he interacts with projectionists, aspiring actors, and musicians, leading him to reflect on his own journey. Hideo Jojo’s heartfelt tribute to cinema unfolds as a delightful tragicomedy, exploring themes of self-discovery, human connection, and the resilience of small communities.
Featured as part of the Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2024.

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!
