Odd Horten has spent his whole working life as a train engineer on the Bergen line. He will make one last journey over the mountain before he retires. But when the train leaves the station without Horten on board, he realizes that the remainder of the journey will take place without printed timetables and familiar stations. Odd Horten has retired, and the platform does not feel like a safe place to remain. O’Horten is a melancholy comedy about engineer Odd Horten’s first arduous days and nights en route from his working life to his
post-retirement existence. Through warmly humorous and absurd situations, we become acquainted with the somewhat timid Horten. This portrait of him becomes a captivating depiction of an elderly man losing his sense of direction – and refinding it.

The watching-with-baby screenings are for parents/carers with young babies (up to 1 year) to enjoy a movie in the company of other parents and their
offspring. We follow the weekly film program so you don't loose out on the latest blockbusters, foreign language films and classic favourites. The Cube provides an area for prams, baby changing facilities, lowered movie volume and extra lighting in the auditorium.

There will always be a friendly Front of House on hand to help.
