Werner Herzog: Radical Dreamer15
Few filmmakers working today have achieved cult figure status like German New Wave pioneer Werner Herzog. Whether he’s hauling a 300-ton steamboat over a Peruvian mountainside, hypnotising his actors, climbing down into volcanoes, or eating his own shoe, his filmography is marked by its astonishing breadth and philosophical depth. With behind-the-scenes access into Herzog’s everyday life, rare archive material, and interviews with the man himself, this documentary offers a glimpse into his work process as well as his personal life.
Come and see our season of classic Werner Herzog fiction features, showing from Sunday 4th – Monday 26th February. Includes screenings of Aguirre: Wrath of God, The Enigma of Kaspar Hauser, Nosferatu The Vampyre, and Fitzcarraldo. Click here for listings and more info.
‘Account of the German film-maker’s singular career takes in numerous starry admirers but also is a portrait of an existential disruptor’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘These stories are already the stuff of cinematic legend, but that doesn’t make their retelling any less compelling.’
Adam Woodward, 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!
