On a Midwestern college campus, a professor and his family face the everyday trials of a squarely ordinary and unspectacular existence. That is until an extraordinarily spectacular event throws their lives into disarray. Adapted from the cult novel by Don DeLillo, Noah Baumbach (Marriage Story, Frances Ha) holds up a hilarious and horrifying mirror to contemporary society in this sharp-witted critique of consumerism and misinformation.
‘Baumbach has landed a sizeable white whale in his tremendously elegant and assured adaptation…It is such a fascinating, invigorating spectacle.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘This is his most ambitious project in both scale and provenance…A charmingly gloomy film.’
Hannah Strong, 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!
