Three Thousand Years Of Longing

1074 Bank St, Ottawa, ON K1S 3X3, Canada


A lonely scholar, on a trip to Istanbul, discovers a Djinn who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom. From Academy Award winning director George Miller, starring Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton, and 2x Screen Actors Guild Awards winner Idris Elba!

10/10! “a celebration of the power of storytelling and shows off Idris Elba’s incredible acting range. It does what a good movie – or rather, a good story – should do and immerses its audience in its world, to the point where they feel like they’re part of it. Miller succeeds at this every time, which only cements his status as one of the best directors working today.” (But Why Tho?)

4/4 Stars! “a timeless spectacle of human understanding that’s one of the best of its kind I’ve seen in years, maybe even decades, maybe ever.” (Movie Freak)

Grade A! “Swinton and Elba are excellent with their performances…an excellent command of filmmaking tools that sets [George Miller] in the upper tier of filmmakers working today.” (idobi Radio)

*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!
