Are you seeking a chance to watch some of the Oscar winning movies this week? If so, you’re in luck – Cottage Road Cinema is showing several award-winning films! We try to vary our programme with a mix of new releases, classics and event cinema but this week is particularly special – all of our screenings are movies that have been nominated for or won Oscars!

Experience for yourself what makes these films worthy of their accolades, by watching them on the big screen here at Cottage Road Cinema.
