Wings of Desire12A
Two angels glide through the bustling streets of Berlin observing the lives of its residents without ever interacting with them. When one of the angels becomes mesmerised by a trapeze artist, he yearns to experience life in the physical world. Winner of the Best Director prize at the 1987 Cannes Film Festival, Wim Wenders’ gorgeous city symphony is a poignant ode to Cold War-era Berlin and a ravishing exploration of what makes us human.
‘A cinema of ideas, almost an essay movie, and utterly distinctive.’
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
‘If some restorations of classic films are mere spit and polish, this one is spectacular: a deepening and sharpening of existing beauty.’
Danny Leigh, The FT

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!
