Located in the Brutalist Brunswick just off Russell Square, this historic arthouse cinema was recently refurbished to the highest technology and design specifications. All screening rooms have Sony 4K projectors, and the main screen is only the second venue in central London to adopt the Dolby Atmos sound system for a multidimensional cinema experience, making it the ideal location for film premieres and galas.

Influenced by the materials and style of post-war Modernism, as well as films by Tarkovsky and Greenaway, the redesign of Curzon Bloomsbury by architect Takero Shimazaki is intended to showcase great films in a minimalist setting. The cinema’s furniture was created according to original designs by renowned British modernist Eileen Gray and supplied by Aram.

The five screens are named after historic venues operated by Curzon since 1934. The largest theatre-style auditorium (named after the previous cinema, the Renoir) seats up to 150 and includes a separate VIP balcony. The more intimate screening rooms seat between 50 and 28. Fully licensed bars are on three levels, including a ground floor foyer with outdoor seating.
