Plan your visit

Our beautiful art deco inspired auditorium can be found just off East Oxford’s Cowley Road.

Opening hours

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!

Getting here

Based just off Cowley Road, the Ultimate Picture Palace is easy to find. There is no off street parking, so we recommend a car free visit if possible. However, there are two blue badge disabled parking spaces directly opposite the cinema. The number 1 and 5 bus from Oxford city centre stop right outside and there are numerous bike parks very close by.

Bar and snacks

Our bar inside the audtiorium serves a range of snacks and drinks including ice cream from G&Ds, locally made cakes, and guest beers from Tap Social and Big Scary Monsters. Our bar is only open in the 30 minutes before the film starts, so make sure you stock up before the lights go down.

Cinema accessibility

Our Grade II listed building has its challenges when it comes to accessibility, but we have put measures in place to ensure that we are an inclusive place for everyone.
