Reviews

‘The non-professional cast, drawn from the community in which these interlocking, quasi-mythic tales of manhood in the making are set, is rooted, real and persuasive.’
★★★★
Wendy Ide, The Observer

‘The rangy, inquisitive screenplay… doesn’t artificially intertwine this pair’s life stories. Instead, it simply allows them to play out in tandem, inviting us to spot the reflections and echoes.’
★★★★
Robbie Collin, The Telegraph

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!
