In the city of San Francisco, a retired police officer with a fear of heights is drawn into a perplexing investigation when an old friend asks him to look into his wife’s erratic behaviour. As the case unfolds, he becomes more and more obsessed, leading him into a web of mistaken identity, passion, and murder. Alfred Hitchcock’s haunting tale of desire was initially met with mixed reviews, but has transformed into a celebrated masterpiece over the decades and is now widely acclaimed as the director’s finest work.
‘Combines in an almost unique balance Hitchcock’s brash flair for psychological shocks with his elegant genius for dapper stylishness.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘A dizzying cinematic experience…Restores its status as a picture to be obsessed with.’
Lillian Crawford, Little White Lies

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!
