Science Oxford Presents Summer Cinema.

This summer we are showing three films at the Science Oxford Centre. All proceeds will go to support the fundraising for Wood Farm Youth Centre as they aim to refurbish their building and kitchen.

Tickets are available online only (through Eventbrite). Please use the button below to take you to the event booking. Capacity is limited, so book early.

What films are you showing?

11th August – Super Mario Bros (2023) (PG)

18th August – Sonic The Hedgehog (2020) (PG)

25th August – Matilda The Musical (2022) (PG)

Where do I have to go?

The films will be shown at Science Oxford Centre, Quarry Road, Headington, OX3 8SB.

Is there parking?

No, unfortunately not. We recommend walking, cycling or using public transport where possible. If you require accessibility parking, please contact us in advance at [email protected].

What time does the event start?

The event will start at 10am, and end at 2pm.

What else does my ticket include?

After the film, don’t rush away. Your ticket gives you access to:

  • The Exploration Zone
  • The Water Lab (we recommend you bring a change of clothes)
  • The Woodlands

We will close at 2pm.

What about food?

You will have the opportunity to learn about the science of popcorn and choose your popcorn flavour, ready for the film. We will provide some light snacks, but we encourage families to bring a picnic lunch. There won’t be any access to the café on these days.

Can I bring the whole family?

All the films have certification associated with them, so we’d recommend bringing family members to the films that are suitable for their age range. All the films have a certification of PG.

Children must be accompanied by an adult (we suggest 1 adult to 2 children).

The lights will be dimmed (but not off!), if you’re worried about anything please contact us as [email protected] for more information. 

What’s the cost?

£1.50 per person. All of this money will go towards supporting the Wood Farm Youth Centre.

Where is the money going?

Wood Farm Youth Group is in the middle of refurbishing their centre and is hoping to do the bulk of the work in the summer holidays. The building has looked tired and lifeless, so they are brightening it up. But more importantly, the kitchen isn’t wheelchair friendly. It is important they are inclusive and try to meet everyone’s needs, and a new kitchen will change the experience and possibilities for some of their users. They are letting young people take control of the space and enjoy being there.
