When not at the BFI or at my local Clapham Picture House the Curzon is the place I can be found consuming my cinema. Apart from a great cinema programme, it’s also a good place to grab a coffee in the foyer upstairs. Stuck for a place to sit on a busy day in town? (remember this place – you could get lucky).
This is a lovely little cinema, comfortable, well designed and with always friendly staff. During the day it’s also a lot cheaper than most of the cinema’s in the West End, and the selection of films they have is almost always fantastic as well.
Have been going here for years and it is a great cinema that always shows the films you want to see but don’t know where to find. If you’re not a fan of mainstream blockbusters then this is the place for you.
Alright, yes, it's expensive, but what do you expect from a Curzon? They have fantastic Q&A events here from time to time that are brilliant for Superfans. I went with my boyfriend to see Senna with a discussion after the screening with the film's director. Such a great draw for filmgoers. It really sets them apart from their competitors.
Yes, extremally expensive (ever looked at memerships?), but yes, extremally nice. We actually had a school trip there couple of years ago from my film school, since we were in some labs around for grading sessions, and walking round soho it really felt like a place to rest. Nowadays I have endless conversations about the films we have seen, and there is nothing better than crushing on 2nd floor sofa when you were running around with three hards drives in your bag all day, and just relaxing with a glass of red. It actually is inspiring to see all these people around in a cinema, watching something different than Funny Green Monster In 3D or The Escape From Burning Plane 2. ;)
This place is fabulous!
It has a Konditor and Cook and downstairs there is a really chilled out bar. When not watching a movie I have taken a shine to coming here as I find it the perfect place to meet someone in central London if you just want somewhere quietish to talk.
This has been my favourite cinema in London since I first came here (to London.) Is there another cinema where you can meet your mates before the film and get drinks, lounge in the loungey annex, chat and get all revved up and filmic, then see the actual film. I love it. Really turns 'watching a film' into a social experience. I always come out bouncing.
Wonderfully private and intimate cinema. We saw The Fall here and loved the fact that it was a smaller auditorium as it the experience so much more personal. I have recently been to see Abel and was allowed to pick up pre-booked tickets at the till in the bar.. made life a lot easier. It's a real gem of a place..
A terrific little cinema which always has a truly wonderful selection of films and some great Q & A sessions. Only thing that keeps it from being five stars is that box office seems a little disorganised (we got our tickets alright but had to wait in a very long queue before being sent downstairs to pick them up from the concesssions stand!)
A little gem of a cinema in the heart of London.
Comfy seats, plenty of room, good sound and a decent screen. Bar is fine with a reasonable beer and wine selection - west end prices.
Put me in mind of a grown up student union!!
Great place to see the movie of last years Bruce gig in Hyde Park - long time since I have seen the audience dancing in the aisles!!
Great cinema in central london, showing the pick of independent films both recent and slightly older.
There is always something interesting on, the screens are great as they are always quite small and intimate but friendly.
The cafe upstairs is brilliant, as is the bar downstairs. Highly recommended.
Cool place, nice film club look, great movies (we watched Exit thru the gift shop).
Do look where you sit because chairs and sofas are stained ew ew ew, refurb needed. Toilets and facilities are pre-historic. Haven't been to big screen yet, smaller one's got comfy seats, but size of the actual screen is smaller than my TV, so that was a bit of let down too.
Now I can really appreciate my local cinema for cleanliness, fresh popcorn and screen size ;)
But do go and have a look, many cool people in, nice staff...
By all means this is a beautiful and comfortable cinema, with amazing sound showing films that you won't catch in your bog standard Vue. A very a slick setting with an accordingly expensive bar. You definitely won't be getting your feet stuck to the floor with old popcorn or experiencing any strange smells.
However...and maybe it's completely bad luck on my part...the couple of times I've been here the clientele have made me want to rip my seat out and lob it at the screen. It is obviously for those that like the finer things in life and have a disposable income and apparently feel the need to talk through the WHOLE film. Seriously every time I've been, there has been chortling, witty remarks, chatting among themselves while fondling their iPhones and one time spoiling the motherjeffing plot. Shut up...Jesus.
But like I said maybe it's just bad luck on my part.
i have been here twice, the first time because there was a david shrigley showing and secondly there was a midnight movie special of the freaks. the films shown here are of a different kind and if you appreciate cinema in a whole new sense then this place is probably the best place. from a whole line of curzon cinemas this is the best for international and independent movies. they have fab and fun events that occur each month and even have exhibitions and talks with animators,illustrators,designers and film makers. it is for them arty farty types like me ;);). there is one near me in richmond too if you dont want to travel far
Indie Pleasure House- that's what I'm putting forward for a name change if it comes about!
You got them all coming here, with their fake thick geek glasses and carefully mussed hair. Drainpipe jeans means facial piercing experiment meets wanta be actors meets posh and slumming it. You got all the cool kids rushing here for some really funky screenings. If you ain't been yet then you just ain't London cool!
Even if you prefer mainstream films, I would suggest you try and see them in indie cinemas like this rather than chain multiplexes with shoddy projection. The Curzon has nice café and bar facilities as well as decent-sized screens. Definitely worth booking ahead as the box office queue tends to move slowly.
This theater has a great selection and an even better vibe. I recently watched Milk at Curzon and had a nice night. The bars are always full and people come just to enjoy the atmosphere and have a coffee. The variety of films being shown is very wide and they cover the categories I enjoy most-independent, art house, foreign, etc. The pricing is expensive, but going to the cinema is pricy everywhere. Located in SOHO, so it is a perfect place to go before a night or as the first portion of a date. The individual screening rooms are nice, not too big. Reminds me of older theaters that are more personal. I really like The Curzon Soho, and intend to go back as many times as I can afford! Student tickets are a bit cheaper.
Easy. What’s not to like? Great art house movies, stuff to peruse and buy, right in the heart of London and with particularly enjoyable bars serving drinks and cofees.
If you’re bored on Sundays, there are regular themed double bills that will consume your weekend like a serious drug habit. If you’re borassic, it’s cheaper on Mondays.
Like I said, what’s not to like?
