BAFTA and Oscar-winning adaptation of the Martin Amis novel of the same name, tells the true story of he commandant of Auschwitz, Rudolf Höss, and his wife Hedwig, strive to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden next to the camp. This incandescent film portrays the idyllic life that the family of Nazi commandant Rudolf Hoss enjoyed in a sumptuous house right next to the concentration camp in Auschwitz right in the middle of the Holocaust.

There is very little soundtrack and it all unfolds at a deliberate pace that is in keeping with Jonathan Glazer's slow-burn, disquieting style. Starring Sandra Huller and Christian Friedl this Oscar-winning gem is a must-see.

Thursday morning screenings include a free cuppa with your ticket.

New! Parent and Baby screening
Friday 3 May 12pm

A monthly screening exclusively for parents/carers with babies under 12 months. Babies can sleep, burble or cry – and parents/carers get a chance to catch up with some cinema. Babies go free! These screenings include Descriptive Subtitling when available and the sound will be lower than usual, and the lights up for your child's comfort.

We have started these screenings due to popular demand, however the cinema is not accessible for buggies due to our steep staircase therefore, and so all parents are kindly asked to bring their babies in a sling for the screenings as we have no buggy park or lift access. Please take special care on the stairs.

Please note that babies (under 12 months) are only allowed to attend our special Parent & Baby and Relaxed screenings, and may not be brought in to our regular screenings. Please see our Terms of Admittance.
