Curzon Cinema, Mayfair

Mayfair is an area known for its elegant dining, luxurious spas and exclusive shops and clubs, but concealed in the hubbub of retail and restaurants is a cinematic gem just waiting to be discovered.  Curzon Mayfair will be 78 years old this year, but it is still a hugely successful cinema, and is renowned for showcasing some of the most interesting and current independent and world cinema that can be found in London today.

This arthouse cinema, located in a Grade II listed building, contrasts modern multiplexes in both appearance and filmic offerings. With only two screens and a fully licensed bar, it provides a truly sophisticated viewing experience which perfectly reflects its Mayfair location. Visitors can choose between the larger, more luxurious Screen One, complete with Royal Boxes, or the smaller, more intimate Screen Two.

You won’t find any summer blockbusters or big Hollywood releases at the Curzon, as their focus is on screening independent film, and quality world cinema. They also host Q&A sessions with members of the industry, and live screenings from prestigious establishments such as The Royal Opera House.

With such a variety of viewing available, it is unsurprising that Curzon Mayfair was voted as one of London’s top 20 cinemas by Time Out readers. If you’re looking for a unique cinema experience with culture and charm, this is the place.

Curzon Mayfair is easily accessible from Green Park or Hyde Park Corner, and is open daily.
