Kinikulture update of forth coming films in Oswestry

Dear Blogger

Message from kinokulture independent cinema in Oswestry.

Moving Forward With Care - Some Changes At kinokulture

From Monday 19 July, England will be entering stage four of the government's roadmap to unlocking coronavirus restrictions. 

We'd like to reassure you that we'll be taking a gradual approach to relaxing safety measures here at kinokulture, and that any changes made will be carefully considered and continually reviewed as necessary. 

We have approached these decisions with the greatest of care, prioritising the access and inclusion of our staff, our customers and our audiences.

We know people and businesses are going to be moving at different speeds as we all approach this new period of adjustment and we'll continue listening to your feedback and updating you regularly.


The following are the decisions we have made as a result of the announcement


Face Coverings:

We encourage you to continue to wear masks when entering & moving around the building. Masks can be removed when seated in our cinema.
We ask everyone to be mindful that some people are unable to wear a face covering, and the reasons for that might not be immediately apparent.

Cinema Capacity:

All Screenings that have been on sale under the previous social distancing guidelines will remain socially distanced with two seats being blocked off either side of a booking.

These screenings include: Cruella, The Father, Two Of Us, Undergods, Land, Mandabi, In The Heights, Dogtanian And the three Muskehounds, Off The Rails & Another Round.


For any new screenings that go on sale we will gradually increase the seating capacity with box office automatically blocking off one seat either side of a booking.

These screenings include: Supernova, Jungle Cruise, The Northern Ballet: Dangerous Liaisons and any future screenings that go on sale.

Cinema bookings are no longer limited to six people.

Introducing some Relaxed/Socially Distanced Screenings:

We know many of our audiences, particularly those who are clinically vulnerable, will feel more comfortable with less people in the cinema screens. We will explore the introduction of some relaxed and/or socially distanced screenings with two seats being blocked off dependent on demand.

Safety measures:
We will continue with the safety measures we have in place, including our increased and enhanced cleaning regime, provision of hand sanitiser throughout the building, maintaining our air flow management plans to ensure adequate ventilation throughout, our one way flow system, staff wearing face coverings and following social distancing guidelines, perspex screens at the box office and bar, and keeping contactless payments. If you would like to check in via NHS Test and Trace please feel free to do so, although it will no longer be required to enter the building.

The safety and wellbeing of our customers and staff is our first priority and we hope those of you that have returned since May have felt comfortable and happy with the measures we've had in place. 

These measures will be continually assessed and we will make you aware of any changes over the coming weeks.

We ask everyone visiting or working in kinokulture to be aware of the latest advice from the UK Government on COVID-19, and to follow that advice to minimise the risk of the virus spreading.

Other changes that we have made since re opening

We have made some changes to our film show times with the introduction of some 5:30pm screenings and some of our evening screenings will now Start at 8pm (with the exception of Event Cinema such as Exhibition On Screen, Theatre & Ballet when they return).

We have also reduced the regular concession ticket price for 16-30's, students, jobseekers & NHS workers to £6.00 and the under 16 ticket price to £4.00. (Again this does not apply to Event Cinema as these prices are set by the distributors).

Although we encourage online booking where possible there may be tickets available on the door (doors open 30 minutes before the screening time).

When available we are introducing Audio Described subtitled screenings for the Hard Of Hearing (AD/HOH)
These will generally be on a Saturday evening. 

We do have a small number of headsets for visually impaired members of our audience to loan during these screenings, please ask at the Box Office.
(Please note a £20.00 refundable deposit will be required).

You can view trailers and information on each film by visiting our website and clicking on the film title or if you already know which film & date you want to book just click on the Book Now icon.

Thank you again for your continued support and understanding

Cruella (12A)

21st & 22nd July 5:30pm

Emma Stone excels as the Young Cruella de Ville. Set in 1970s London against a backdrop of the emerging punk scene, this playful prequel by Craig Gillespie (I, Tonya) is a fine feat of world-building. Like Phantom Thread or Marie Antoinette, it's also an excellent fashion film, playing on the myth of the egocentric, detail-oriented genius.

Run time 2 hours 16 mins


The Father (12A)

25th July 2:00pm

27th July 5:30pm

Academy Award and BAFTA Award-winner THE FATHER is a tremendously powerful story about a man who begins to question the fabric of his reality. With powerhouse performances from Anthony Hopkins and Olivia Colman, Florian Zeller's uniquely made feature film debut is disorientating and intriguing, and must be seen to be believed.

Run time: 1 hour 37 mins


27th July 8:00pm
28th July 5:30pm

continuing our Summer Of Queer Cinema Season 'Two Of Us' is a beautiful and poignant tale of hidden love. After more than twenty years of loving in the shadows Madeleine promises Nina she will tell her family about their life together. Though certain of her love for Nina, Madeleine struggles with the prospect of "coming out". When an unexpected, life-altering event turns their world upside down Madeleine's daughter unwittingly begins to unravel their truth. 

Run time: 1 hour 35 mins

Undergods (15)

29th July 8:00pm

A riptide of surrealism runs through Chino Moya's ambitious debut feature, a fantasy suite of tales that don't so much interlock as butt into one another and blurt out alarming, dreamlike correspondences. Chino Moya's debut feature collects three stories into a stylish package of domestic male insecurity, all set in a crumbling European city.

"Undergods is a thoroughly entertaining, thought-provoking watch with striking visuals, a killer soundtrack and a harrowingly human message" The Upcoming

Run time: 1 hour 32 mins

Oswestry Film Society
Saint Frances (15)

20th July 7:30pm 

You'll be hard pushed to find a bad review of this smart, funny and touching comedy drama, a deserved winner at many a film festival in 2019.  Drifting thirtysomething Bridget leads a fairly aimless life, waitressing while never knowing what she truly wants.  While dealing with emotional repercussions from a pregnancy termination she takes a job as a nanny to a smart six year old girl, Frances.  As the summer progresses and her relationship with Frances develops, Bridget starts to get a better understanding of herself and her hopes.
