It’s been a tough year for the Curzon.
The leaking roof, which was once, the biggest problem the cinema had experienced in recent history, was surpassed in spectacular fashion by Covid-19 forcing closure. After 108 years of continuously operating, through two world wars and the advent of the digital age, the Curzon had to close it’s doors.
Still! The team have continued to keep everyone informed and entertained with film recommendations, historic facts and updates from the volunteers while we all stayed indoors.
When they could, contractors returned to the roof and cracked on with those repairs that Clevedon so valiantly came together to support and raise funds for.
The tiles tagged by members of the public have been carefully placed in a moment in history, in a bigger, a more momentous year than any of us could have imagined.
Wallace, Gromit, Morph and Arthur from Aardman Animation Studios even produced a reboot of their award winning fundraising video to tell us all about it.
And now, with a matter of weeks before the roof is finally repaired… We are all looking forward to welcoming the Curzon back into action.
There is still a long road ahead of the Curzon as they reopen after months of closure. The independent cinema relies on support from the local community as well as a team of hardworking volunteers who keep the screenings ship-shape and ever so enjoyable for everyone.
