Videodrome18

Directed by David Cronenberg | Canada | 1983 | 1h 29m | Starring James Woods, Debbie Harry, Sonja Smits, Peter Dvorsky

The president of a trashy TV channel is desperate to attract viewers and stumbles across “Videodrome” – a hyper-violent precursor to reality TV. As he unearths the origins of the programme, he embarks on a hallucinatory journey into a world of right-wing conspiracies, sadomasochism, and bodily transformation. David Cronenberg’s dark satire on consumerism now appears incredibly prophetic in its depiction of the intersection of sex, violence, technology and media.

Reviews

‘Its dense mysteries remain more tantalizing than distancing: No other director integrates the creepy with the cerebral quite like Cronenberg.’
★★★★
Scott Tobias, The AV Club

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!
