Werckmeister Harmonies12A

Directed by Béla Tarr | Hungary | 2000 | 2h 25m | Hungarian w/ English subtitles | Starring Lars Rudolph, Peter Fitz, Hanna Schygulla, János Derzsi, Djoko Rosic

In a small Hungarian town, the harsh winter is disrupted by the arrival of a mysterious circus, featuring an enormous stuffed whale and a tantalising attraction known as The Prince. As the festivities stir the locals into a frenzy, a solitary newspaper delivery man witnesses the ensuing chaos. Adapted from László Krasznahorkai’s novel The Melancholy of Resistance, filmmaker Béla Tarr crafts an apocalyptically transcendent portrait of disorder and governmental control, conveyed through his signature long tracking shots.

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!
